Psychiatrist - MD/DO

Apple of the north

Community --- Anchorage, AK

Locals like to say that Anchorage is only 30
minutes from Alaska: wedged between 5000ft peaks and an inlet filled with
salmon and whales, the Big Apple of the north is unlike any other city.At first glance the traffic, strip malls and
suburban sprawl can feel off-putting. But inside those strip malls are
top-notch restaurants serving fresh seafood and locally grown produce, and the
two roads that lead in and out of town spool right into some of the most
majestic wilderness in the world. This is a city where bears are seen wandering
bike paths, moose munch on neighborhood gardens, and locals pull salmon from a
creek within blocks of hotels and office buildings.
