BRAIN BALANCE ACHIEVEMENT CENTERS
15 Cross Street, Norwalk
At Brain Balance Achievement Centers, we work with children affected by ADHD, OCD, Tourette Syndrome, Dyslexia, learning disabilities and spectrum disorders. Scientific studies show neuro-developmental disorders such as these are the result of an imbalance between the brain's right and left hemispheres. Our Brain Balance program is a drug-free approach, aimed at restoring brain balance. Physical and cognitive activities combined with nutritional supplements have been shown to be the winning combination to waking dormant areas of a child's brain. The program develops effective neural pathways, resulting in enhanced performance.

WOMEN'S HEALTHCARE OF NEW ENGLAND
761 Main Avenue, Norwalk; (203) 644-1100
30 Stevens Street, Norwalk; (203) 644-1160
10 South Street, Ridgefield; (203) 894-3777
During my undergraduate training, I realized that I wanted to help people and make a difference in their lives; becoming a physician would allow me to do just that. Once I entered medical school, my clinical rotation in women's health interested me the most. Being able to educate, treat and work with women has been very fulfilling for me. I chose to continue to be an advocate for women's health by becoming an OB/GYN; by doing so, I am able to care for women and have the fortunate ability to educate and empower them.
