Meet Our Providers

Our providers aim to give you an exceptional experience and the highest quality care.

“I wanted to write a review for Rachel Doggett: she absolutely deserves recognition for a job well done. I’ve been in her care a handful of times in past years and she has always maintained a consistent caring disposition. Rachel makes you feel like you’re a team when making decisions and she is extremely pragmatic when treating you (which is what I appreciate the most). She is cognizant of personal boundaries and leaves you feeling validated and heard. I’ve never felt rushed by her and have always left her care knowing she did everything she could for my situation. You can tell she chose this career for the right reasons; that makes a world of difference for the patient. The staff is also friendly - I’ve never had a bad experience at DMU clinics. Thank you Rachel for treating me like a human and not a number and for turning a bad day into a good one!”
