About

Bio

I am a board certified OB-GYN who has been in the South Florida Area since 1991. I have 2 offices , one in Coral Springs and the other in Boca Raton , Fl. I have an active obstetrical practice and do both low and high risk OB. I also do all aspects of office Gyn as well as specializing in minor office surgeries such as Tubal sterilization, Endometrial Abaltion to treat abnormal or heavy bleeding, Hysteroscopy, D C, Myosure to treat fibroids, Leep and Urodynamics and Bone Densities.All of these are done in the office which is much easier and much more convenient than doing it in the hospital and cheaper for my patients. I also do minor and major surgery in the hospital when necessary. I treat STDs, vaginitis offer contraception, menopausal therapy, PMS, and infertiltiy workup and treatment as well as all forms of birth control and evaluation of pelvic pain and ovarian cysts.I also diagnose and treat abnormal pap smears as well as abnormalities of the vulva and vagina.I diagnose and treat endometriosis as well as do screening for all types of female cancer.

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.
