Dr. Elizabeth "Libby" Flower brings a life-long dedication to the medical needs of rural communities. She grew up on St Croix in the Virgin Islands and earned a BA in physics at Sonoma State as a single mother with two young children while working as an x-ray tech at Palm Drive Hospital. She graduated from UCSF as an MD in 1997. Her work in Emergency Medicine at the Garberville Hospital inspired her to work in other rural areas such as Mendocino, Humboldt, Sonoma, and Trinity counties. She returned to Palm Drive as an emergency room physician from 2001 to 2005 and is currently the director of Progressive Urgent Care in Sebastopol. She is interested in the potential of telemedicine to extend exceptional medical care to people in rural communities.
