But beyond just diagnosing and treating the problem, Dr. Debra Ravasia prefers to identify the causes of the problems that necessitated the visit in the first place and advises women to maintain their post-treatment states and prevent future problems through a combination of low carb eating, stress management, physical fitness, medication adjustments and overall lifestyle changes. Dr. Debra Ravasia works with her patients to determine exactly how and why they feel as women, and modify the situation holistically to achieve a sense of wellness that goes beyond just confirming the absence of a disease.

She also enjoys humanitarian projects and recently returned from a mission working with Doctors without Borders at a maternity hospital in Afghanistan.
