Bio

I am a board certified OBGYN. Helping women with their health needs has been my passion.The patient always comes first for me. Keeping our mind and body healthy is important for our happiness. Menopause, Premenstrual syndrome, Pregnancy, Vaginal Problems, Vaginal Bleeding are my favorite topics. I am on my sabbatical at this time. My God Mother and my Mother need my time. I am grateful that via Health Tap I can continue to help my patients. I am involved in a project regarding elimination of violence against women. Women empowerment is my area of interest. I am keen on helping women overcome their issues with Premenstrual syndrome and Menopause using meditation and medication to provide wholesome care. Empowered women can uplift and better the World. I am proud to be a Gynecologist!
