About

Bio

I am passionate about medicine and people in general. I am trained in advanced laparoscopic surgery. I feel comfortable managing full areas of obstetrics and gynecology. I believe a physician should be able to heal not only the body but also the soul of his patients. Thats why it s very important to establish a relationship with your patients by carefully listening to them and understanding their needs and desires.

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.
