Their focus is on caring for the adult population (young, middle, and older adults, ages 13 and older) with complex diseases.

Ms. Wedderburn has over six years of experience working in internal medicine at the University of Miami Hospital and Mercy Hospital in Miami, Florida. She received her Master's Degree from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. Barry University is a private Catholic university in Miami Shores.
