“I believe in combining the best medical evidence with the newest technologies to tailor each patient’s care to her individual needs and goals.”
Each day is something that I’m proud of. I get to take care of people. I get to perform an advanced surgery that maybe couldn't have been done the day before or the week before. Each day something new comes up, and you work together with your team to find the best solution for that individual patient. At the end of the day, my patient has received the best care possible and I’m proud when that has been accomplished.
I love the opportunity I have in providing obstetric and gynecological care to really get to know my patients individually. These are women that I see, maybe during a pregnancy to start—a great experience that I get to follow from start to finish. And now, down the road, they come back, sometimes needing a surgery or other care, which allows me to build a really unique relationship with them.
I also feel strongly that as physicians we need to be active in ensuring quality care at our hospitals, advocating on behalf of our patients to our elected officials, setting national standards for our specialties and providing healthcare information that is easily accesible. For these reasons, in addition to my patient care responsibilities, I also serve as the Medical Director of Obstetrics at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, a Trustee on the Board of the Washington State Medical Association, the Vice Chair of the American College of OBGYNS (ACOG) Washington Section, the Chair of the Washington State Medical Association Political Action Committee, and host the DrNari YouTube channel with informational women’s health videos.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I chose to come to The Everett Clinic because I really liked the model of how they worked. It's a place where you've got a lot of great physicians, staff and people who are working towards the same goal: to take care of their patients. All of my colleagues are people I am really fond of, people I know I can count on at any time. If I'm not there, I know my patients are going to be really well taken care of. I really feel that the system here and the people are some of the best in the country.
