Commitment to Patient-Centered Care
“I am committed to working with patients and families to identify their unique needs, understand personal priorities and work collaboratively in goal setting to improve overall well-being. I value utilizing the expertise of the multidisciplinary care team and connecting patients to resources and community supports to meet non-medical needs, and see this as a key part of providing individualized, quality health care.”
Since completing residency in 2004, Dr. Robertshaw has focused her clinical practice in urban, outpatient settings providing primary care to adults. Her current clinical practice focuses on a multidisciplinary team approach to help patients set health-related goals, and reduce barriers that arise from complex behavioral health and social needs. Her interests include providing care in non-traditional settings, community health, models of care delivery and social determinants of health. She also enjoys teaching students and residents.
