Philosophy of Care
I enjoy the gamit of obstetrics and gynecology and participating in a woman's health care from youth through menopause. I especially enjoy involving women in their own care and health decisions and providing patient education. I love that as an ObGyn I can offer medical, psychologic, and surgical care! I am part of a wonderful collaborative skilled and caring ObGyn group that helps me care for my patients even more thoroughly. My special joys are obstetrics, minimally invasive surgery, negotiating perimenopausal challenges, and continuing care for dear patients over a number of years.
