Biography & Education

Biography
I was drawn to OB/GYN due to the unique care issues for women from puberty through menopause. While I enjoy challenging surgery, especially laparoscopic and vaginal approaches, I will endever to find a nonsurgical approach whenever appropriate. In OB the goal is to keep the pregnancy low-risk, but my experience with both high- and low-risk OB, allows me to deal with difficult pregnancies with confidence.
