“I have experience within the medical community as a patient, a parent and a physician. I know that managing a chronic disease can be burdensome and I will approach the time with my patients as an opportunity to lighten this load. As a physician, my role is to honor my patient’s own unique experience and wisdom as I guide, collaborate with and care for my patient.”
When not working, Dr. Runchey enjoys traveling, dancing, gardening and spending time with her family and friends.
