Things You May Not Know About Dr. Angela


For some reason, patients always have an idea of what I am actually like outside the office. I have had people tell me that “my house must be so clean” or that they bet “I never watch TV.” I have had more comical characters ask if when no one is looking I eat chocolate cake in the closet! The pic above is me just being me. Hanging out with friends. Unedited. Playing bags on a summer day. I have to say, I have no clue why people sometimes have a perfect persona of myself. I am anything but perfect….so to show you that I am just human like everyone else, it’s show and tell time…kinda….at least “tell”
