An active listener, Alicia prioritizes your goals and emphasizes a patient-centred approach to treatment. This includes providing you with a thorough understanding of the treatment and course of action so we can work together to get you back to what you enjoy doing most.
Alicia's main hobby includes playing soccer, whether it is through recreational leagues or even through friendly pickup matches in the park. She also enjoys hiking, cycling, and distance running, especially in community running groups.
