Dr. Kim Perttu is an experienced physician who specializes in family medicine and obstetrics, with a strong focus on prevention and wellness. She is looking forward to meeting new families, caring for patients of all ages and enjoys bringing little ones into the world.
"I enjoy the variety of patients I see in a family medicine setting. I place an important emphasis on the preventive aspects of medicine, and I am one to encourage the basics (nutrition, physical activity, and mental well-being). I believe in empowering my patients to achieve greater health. I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level and by doing so; I can really form a strong connection and build their trust. When we work together as a team to meet their healthcare needs, it's much more successful. And that really makes all the difference," she explains. "Obstetric care is a special calling. I feel privileged and overjoyed that I can help bring a new life into world. To me, there's no greater gift."
