About

Bio

I am a practicing gynecologist in Sarasota, Florida. I am board-certified in OBGYN and also board-certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (also known as urogynecology). I am the chairman of Gynecology at Sarasota Memorial Hospital (ranked #2 in Florida for years).

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.
