When speaking on her experience as a Family Physician, Dr. Tunney explains, "In my practice, I typically embrace a "whole patient approach." I believe in the importance of taking a holistic approach with my patients, understanding that emotional, spiritual and social distress impacts our physical health and vice versa. As a family physician, I value my relationships with patients. As I develop relationships with my patients, my ability to understand their unique health challenges grows and allows me to provide them with excellent evidence-based medical care while incorporating a holistic approach."
