About

Bio

I practice general Gynecology. I am board certified i OB/GYN, but quit practicing OB 3 years ago. I am board certified in OB/GYN, and have been in practice for 30 years with a particular expertise in Laparoscopy, Menopause, and the dying art of least invasive Vaginal Surgery. Office is on time!

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.
