What I enjoy most about practicing obstetrics and gynecology is the relationships I develop with my patients. I feel that medical care is a partnership and that my patients should be involved in all aspects. My fields of interest include general obstetrical care, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, laparoscopic surgery and menopausal care. Good health begins with preventive medical care and healthy living. Laughing a lot also helps. It is important for the patient to feel comfortable and confident with her physician, and I work hard at fostering that relationship. My goal is to provide the most quality medical care possible. I consider it a privilege to participate in your healthcare as your provider.
