Patient Care Philosophy
Patients are often overwhelmed when faced with the diagnosis of gynecologic cancer or the need for surgery for a benign gynecologic condition. I am committed to offering a patient competent and compassionate medical care. I strive to develop a trusting relationship with my patients. I want them to understand there are options and choices they can make and enjoy helping patients navigate this process.
