Medicine always appealed to me because I saw it as the perfect way to use my intellectual abilities to help others. In medical school obstetrics and gynecology seemed the perfect combination of medicine and surgery. From resolving the unique health problems women face to sharing in the amazing time of pregnancy and childbirth, women’s health care is especially fulfilling. I try to give each patient the time they need, to listen, and be a sounding board. That allows us to create a partnership that the patient can rely on, no matter what life brings their way – and it’s the standard of care they deserve.
