About

Bio

I was the first in my family to go to college and attend Medical School in Bochum and Essen, Germany, and University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA. Subsequently, I completed training as an obstetrician/gynecologist at the Justus-Liebig-University, Giessen, Germany extending my experience to gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology, and maternal fetal medicine. I spent a couple years as a research scholar with the NICHHD Perinatal Research Branch in Detroit, MI. Based on my clinical skills, my research and being a published author, and my teaching of medical students I achieved the highest academic rank in Germany, that of a "Privatdozent". Since 1999 I have been practicing obstetrics and gynecology in the United States.
