Although Dr. Ana has a general clinical practice, she has a special focus on digestive health, mental health, in addition to supporting those with PCOS, other menstrual irregularities, and those trying to conceive.

Health and wellness, to Dr. Ana, embodies not only mere physical health, but also its full integration with mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. She recognizes that each patient has a unique story, with equally unique health concerns. Thus she thrives to provide each of her patients with an individualized plan of care using various tools (such as lifestyle and dietary counselling, acupuncture, and targeted supplementation).
