“Women lead complicated lives with issues that can have a profound effect on every aspect of their lives. Listening to my patients’ concerns, sharing medical information, and making them an active participant in their health care, are central to my practice of medicine. One of the joys of being an ob-gyn is being part of a patient’s life over many years. From young teens to post-menopausal women, I seek to improve my patients’ overall health and sense of well-being by providing compassionate care for all stages of a woman’s life.”
