About Me

I chose the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology because it is the field in which I feel I can make the most difference. My goal is to provide individualized, evidence-based knowledge to allow women to make the best choices for themselves to optimize their reproductive health. From helping select personalized family planning options to alleviating pain and bleeding problems to challenging surgeries to restore one back to her previous good state of health, I strive to provide top quality care. My further training in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and gynecologic ultrasound help me in helping my patients. Providing empathic support, earning trust and improving my patients lives is what drives me every day.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I study pregnancy of unknown location and ectopic pregnancy to optimize diagnosis and management of those condition. My research aims to detect which patients would benefit from medical treatment and which would be able to heal on their own. Another field I am interested in is saline infusion sonography. Studying this method allows me to detect causes of abnormal bleeding in women, particularly in those in menopause. I combine this method with biopsy minimizing pain and need for additional procedures for my patients.
