Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Timme has received is, “Pursue in life what brings you joy.”

The most exotic place she has visited is Wadi Rum (the valley of the moon) in Jordan. It contains about 184,000 acres of red sand and has the best sunsets.

Not many people know this, but Dr. Timme plays the guitar and she danced ballet for nine years.

Her guilty pleasures are getting massages and trying new restaurants.

​My goal is to provide evidence-based medicine that allows my patients to receive the best quality of care. I strive to treat the patient rather than the disease and believe that personal, individualized care is key to favorable outcomes. I believe that communication is essential to patient care, which is why I aim to develop healthy relationships with my patients and their families.
