Biography & Education

Biography
I believe medicine is an art as well as a science. Through my experience I have learned the importance of listening to each woman's problems and to work with them to plan a medical treatment that is unique to their problems and needs. I want my patients to feel safe and confident about their medical care. To help facilitate this, I provide education about the options that are available and with medical guidance, the patient takes part in their treatment decisions. Throughout their lives whether they are in puberty, young adulthood, motherhood or menopause women need special care.
