Welcome to the latest entry in our ongoing Spotlight Family Medicine Provider of the Month blog series. We are always so excited to educate our patients about the wonderful providers in our medical family. Each of our board-certified family medicine providers brings their own unique skills and experience that make our practice more well-rounded and knowledgeable as a whole. This month, we are delighted to present one of the newest additions to our medical team, Dr. Leah Macklin.

She sees patients in all areas of family medicine including women’s health, skin conditions, joint pain, diabetes, and hypertension, however, she specializes in treating and preventing chronic conditions with lifestyle changes. She uses her unique goal-oriented process to assist patients to improve their overall health and wellness with the help of physical activity, healthier eating, and other positive lifestyle adjustments.
