Bio

I am a board certified OB/GYN practicing in Montgomery, Alabama at several local hospitals. I specialize in advanced laparoscopic techniques including the DaVinci Robotics System.

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.
