Selma L. Sroka, MD, AZCIM
Family and Community Medicine
Commitment to Patient-Centered Care
"I prefer to work in partnership, with consideration for each person's goals and belief system, to consider options and negotiate next steps that are right for the individual at that time."
Dr. Sroka has practiced and taught family medicine for over 25 years. While family medicine is her home base, she has been a pioneer in the development of a more holistic and integrative approach to care in the HCMC System. Within integrative health, her passion has been to promote self-care and a healthy life style, along with developing strong stress management and resilience building skills for both medical providers, staff and patients.
