Amanda Booth, M.D.
Dr. Booth was drawn to healthcare initially in middle school when helping in her grandmother's care following her diagnosis with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Though caring for her was hard, she remembers the confusion surrounding her grandmother’s diagnoses and their trajectories which made it that much harder for her family. Years later, Dr. Booth pursued medicine with the intent to focus on education and complete care of her members. She believes understanding something is the first step in changing something.
Dr. Booth chose Spira Care because of the focus of integrative care and how important that is to help members reach their health goals.
Primary care is meant to focus on preventive care. Because of time and financial constraints, primary care has recently grown to focus on treating diseases once they are diagnosed, instead of preventing the diseases. For preventive care to be possible, a relationship between providers and their members needs to be established. And this relationship takes time build, which has been hard to come by in old primary care models.
At Spira Care, Dr. Booth hopes to build effective relationships with her members; help them set health goals, understand what is important to them, what affects their quality of life and what specific barriers must change.
When Dr. Booth isn’t seeing members, you may find her gardening, preserving food, being creative and hiking – all which have come in handy during the pandemic.
