About

Bio

My interest is the application of psychopharmacology into obstetrics and Gynecology. Treatment of mood and anxiet disorders in pregnancy, narcotic replacent for opiod addicted mothers with buprenorphone, pelvic pain, menopausel symptoms, fibromyalgia, PMS and PMDD, insomnia, Post Partum depression and evaluation and treatment for disorder's of mood and anxiety. I am not a psychiatrist but have always been interested. I am a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology buy recieved training to recieve the title of "Master Psychopharmacologist" by completing the 1 year course. I always bring in a top down approach when needed. I am well versed in laparoscopic surgery, pregnancy and labor management, ambulatory medicine ( non - emergency) surgical treatment of urinary incontince, contraception; I do basic OB/GYN but take great pleasure in using medication to help others live their best course of life. I think that is the goal
