Philosophy of Care
I am dedicated to providing high-quality, patient-centered care to women with urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and other pelvic floor disorders. I work with each patient to clearly understand her problems as well as her specific goals, then devise a treatment plan that best fits her individual needs. I am fellowship-trained and board certified in Urogynecology, so am typically able to present patients a variety of treatment options.
