Patient Care Philosophy
I enjoy my practice in obstetrics and gynecology because it is challenging as well as extremely rewarding to care for women in all stages of life. I appreciate women who take an interest in their health and are actively involved in their care. I like to work collaboratively with patients and offer options for treatment. I feel especially honored to be part of a woman's journey through life.
My clinical interests include normal and high-risk obstetrics, ultrasound, patient education, gynecological surgery including laparoscopic and vaginal surgery, cervical dysplasia, menstrual disorders, contraception and family planning.
