Her contagious energy and passion has helped to foster our philosophy of mindful cultivation of beauty inside and out. Joining a team of strong and intelligent women is a dream come true for any spirited female physician.

Determined to combine multi-faceted approaches to medicine, she finished residency at New York Medical College, and went on to become board-certified in both Emergency Medicine and Aesthetic Medicine.
Over the last 8 years, Dr. Erica has cultivated a passion for wellness and integrative beauty, becoming recognized for her natural approach to injectables and comprehensive patient care. Utilizing her training with the Functional Medicine University she became an expert in platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) rejuvenation, using the body’s own healing abilities to turn back the clock.
