About

Bio

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1990. I did my residency at Madigan Army Medical Center from 1990-1994 and served in the Army as an ObGyn for 8 years. I have practiced Obstetrics and gynecology in Central PA since 1998. I currently own my own practice in Camp Hill, PA. I enjoy musical theater, travel, art and reading. I have been continually Board Cerified since 1996.

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.
