Dr. Nazare earned her medical doctorate from the International University of Health Science in St. Kitts and Nevis, West Indies.
“What geared me towards internal medicine is the fact that I can follow a patient through their acute or chronic course,” says Dr. Nazare. “It allows me to watch my patient’s disease process improve over time. My goal is to help my patients reach their best possible health so that they can prevent hospitalizations.”
Dr. Nazare completed an internal medicine residency at Memorial University in Savannah, Georgia. She provides compassionate care to patients and works with them to develop a treatment plan that benefits their long-term health.
