About

Bio

I was trained at NYU Medical Center in New York. I have been practicing OB/Gyn in Atlanta since 1991 with a primary focus on comprehensive care for women throughout their complete life-cycle. This includes contraceptive care, pregnancy care, infertility treatment, general gynecologic care and care of the menopausal women. I have a special interest in the treatment of fibroids and in minimally invasive gynecologic procedures. This includes vaginal surgery as well as Robotic surgery. I have travelled exptensively, and have a very diverse patient clientele, thus am very culturally sensitive. I believe good medical care is a partnership between patient and physician, thus provide as much information as possible so that patients can participate fully in their health care.

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.
