David J. Gabriel, M.D.

Care Philosophy

New medical products and tests continue to be introduced that changes how physicians practice medicine. However the relationship between family doctor and patient does not "change" so much as it "grows" as we journey through life together. I am privileged to work for amazing people, my patients, some for two decades. My style is to put medical science through a practical sense filter on an individualized basis to provide advice to prevent illness, to help heal when illness occurs, and to provide comfort when a recovery cannot be achieved

She enjoys spending time with family, friends and her adorable Cockapoo Tungsten.

Care Philosophy:

Jennifer takes care of all ages, although she has a special place in her heart for kids! She enjoys family medicine because it gives her the opportunity to establish bonds with families as a whole unit and truly get to know her patients on a different level to best help them. Coming from a medically underserved community, Jenny understands how essential access to healthcare and establishing rapport with your healthcare providers are. Her special interests include pediatrics, sports medicine, women’s health, and chronic illnesses.
