Bio

Board Certified OB/Gyn located in Park City, UT, working for Intermountain Healthcare. I am based on the campus of Park City Intermountain Hospital. I began my practice in 1996, and I specialize in the management of uncomplicated & high-risk pregnancies, as well as office Gynecology and minimally-invasive Gyn surgery.

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.
