About

Bio

I am an OB/GYN with a subspecialty in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility practicing in Cincinnati, Ohio where I grew up. It has been wonderful being surrounded by my family and friends. Having also trained in Medical Acupuncture, I bring a refreshing blend of traditional Western medicine combined with the ancient art of Traditional Chinese Medicine, that has been around since the second century B.C.

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.
