Was impressed by Dr. Jovanic's businesslike and experienced manner in progressing through the Wellness questionaire. She was also warm and interested. For a first meeting, it was great.

My visit was with a new doctor for me. I was comfortable with her immediately. She spent time talking with me regarding my health issues. I was pleased with her manner/personality, etc. She was great!

She listened to me, was very informed and informative, and yet was also efficient (but friendly.) Very good doc, so glad I switched.

This doctor was extremely rushed and treated me as if i were taking up her time as an annoyance.

I had an AMAZING experience! First time that I felt comfortable; not rushed, not judged and confident in what the doctor was explaining to me! Thank you so much!

I was nervous about having a new doctor (I had my last doctor for about 15 years). Dr. Jovanovic was so caring and friendly, and I am really glad I found her and will continue to be her patient.

*Dr. Jovanovic asked questions that were not asked in my previous visit for the same problem. She was able to make a different diagnosis and was able to prescribe a treatment that was correct. I am grateful to her for her thoroughness and help in alleviating my discomfort.

We came to *Dr. J. after a long period under another physician with whom we were well satisfied and there was some apprehension on our part. But *Dr. J. set any concerns we had at ease in short order with her open, straight-forward and friendly style. I'm happy we found her.

She did an excellent job of communicating to me what was going on with my health and how to treat it. Very personable.

In what I like to refer to as my "previous life," I was passionate about making films. After receiving my BFA from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, I worked in Hollywood for about three years. Although it was exciting at times, I never felt as if I was doing real work or contributing to my community in a meaningful way. After much soul-searching I left the entertainment industry and started my premedical training. I graduated from UC Davis and made my way to the Pacific Northwest for a residency in Vancouver, Washington. Instantly I felt that I had found my niche here and now plan never to leave. I spend most of my time these days wrangling my very entertaining young son. We are great adventurers and have fun exploring the world both near and far.

About my practice

I have been a practicing family physician in this area since 2001. Family medicine is a great fit for me because I enjoy caring for the "whole patient," from birth until the end of life. I especially love treating entire families. I value helping members not only during times of crisis but, more importantly, before crisis hits and then afterward. My current passion is preventive medicine. I strive to help my patients become their healthiest selves while working to understand their struggles in getting there. Although I see both male and female patients, I particularly enjoy women's health and am trained in gynecological procedures including placement of IUDs and other implantable contraceptives.

How I thrive

Taking after my parents, I have been an avid hiker for most of my life. Even though motherhood has slowed me down, I strive to teach my son to love nature by getting us into the outdoors as much as possible. Although the gym is not my favorite place, I do manage to get there a couple of times a week just to keep up my heart health. I practice yoga for more whole body and spiritual health, and our active little Boston terrier also keeps me on my toes. I make a point of keeping in close touch with family and friends, understanding that frequent human contact is key to a long and healthy life.
