However, physicians are finding ways to connect with patients and focus on meaningful discussions at each visit. One example is Dr. Cody Matthews, who recently joined the team at LeBauer Grandover Village.

January 16, 2019 | Primary Care, Provider

Camille Andy, MD at LeBauer Summerfield VillageAs a new year gets underway, Dr. Camille Andy with LeBauer HealthCare at Summerfield Village has a word of hope for anyone struggling to reach health goals or New Year’s resolutions. “It’s never too late to work on changes,” says Dr. Andy.

Trying something new to reach a health goal is something Dr. Andy is familiar with in her own life. She didn’t start regularly exercising until she was an adult and working in her medical career.

“Exercise was not something I grew up with,” says Dr. Andy. “I’ve learned how it can be fun and something that I like doing. It’s about enjoying moving and getting stronger and being more fit. I have a young daughter I need to keep up with, so it’s especially important to me to be able to have stamina. I’ve discovered spin classes, CrossFit, and strength training are all types of exercise that I enjoy.”
