WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Since 1990, I have worked very hard to be a medical advocate for my patients, their families, and our community. I have delivered over 4,000 babies and participated in the care and management of thousands more. I enjoy the variety of practice in obstetrics and gynecology. Every day is a little different. The happy excitement of helping patients with their pregnancies is the core of our practice. I also like the surgical aspect of obstetrics and gynecology, such as endometrial ablations and hospital-based minimally invasive robotic surgery. When not at work, I enjoy time with my family and friends. I am happily married with three children. At home, I enjoy tinkering about the house, our pets, and a long list of "honey-do" projects. Additional interests include travel, food, exercise, classical music, reading, and crossword puzzles.
