A Wife and a Mom Like You
As a wife and a mom like many of you, I have learned a lot about women's health through experiencing the life stages of adolescence, childbirth and perimenopause myself. While my formal medical training has enabled me to practice medicine, my own life experiences have shaped the way I relate to my patients. I truly enjoy my visits with them.
Not delivering babies has allowed me to spend more time with my gynecology patients, listening, diagnosing, treating, and often just visiting with them to catch up on their lives. I think that's what the practice of medicine is all about: the doctor lending an ear and finding the resources you need for good health.
Sometimes, I will refer you to others for the help you need because I don't do certain procedures, be it medical or laser. And, that's okay.
When you become a patient in my office, my goal is to provide you with the best possible care, whether it is through my office, or through another physician. My role in this practice as your doctor is to empower you to take care of yourself, to maintain your health and to boost your confidence in your appearance.
