A therapeutic provider-patient relationship is key to Jeanette's medical philosophy.

She is committed to providing quality, up-to-date care through that partnership.

Born and raised on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Ms. Sessoms is still fond of the culture and quaintness of the area. She enjoys spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, playing the piano, swimming, listening to music and traveling.
