Dr. Oakes believes in empowering and educating her patients. While gaining expertise in gastroenterology she learned that health includes not only the body, but also the mind, diet and lifestyle. Together we will learn about your symptoms and make decisions as a team to improve your health. My goal as your physician is to communicate my advice effectively while balancing it with your concerns.
A native of Salt Lake City she is excited to be back in the community and caring for patients. In her free time Dr. Oakes enjoys cooking all types of food, being outside in the mountains, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
