About

Bio

It is the connections that I make with my patients that really makes my job exciting and rewarding. Patients come to see their ObGyn with deeply personal and, at times, very troubling concerns. It is very rewarding to me to be able to offer my patients treatments, both medical and surgical, that can sometimes change their whole outlook on life. I love to see the hope in a patient’s eyes that comes when they have been struggling with pain or bleeding problems for so long and I tell them I can help. It is this opportunity to give patients hope and help them through both joyful and difficult times that makes me passionate about being an ObGyn doctor. For me, minimally invasive surgery is the most exciting part of my practice and I completed an additional two years of fellowship training to acquire advanced surgical skills.
