About

Bio

I am a board-certified Ob/Gyn from Birmingham Alabama. I have 19 years of private practice experience, and pride myself on keeping up to date with the latest developments in my field - I re-certify every year, and I commit to reading 6 journals per month. I believe in personal, compassionate care, remembering who the Great Physician is as I treat my patients.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
