About

Bio

I currently practice General Obstetrics Gynecology. My interests are in general and complicated Obstetrics but also common Gynecologic concerns. I am married and have four children. I enjoy getting to know my patients and taking as much time as they need to answer their questions. As we say in our practice 'it is not the number of women we treat...it is how we treat women". If you live anywhere near Madison Wisconsin, I encourage you to visit our practice!
