Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Maternal complications of pregnancy; congenital fetal anomalies and fetuses at risk for poor outcomes; obstetric complications of pregnancy, including placental abnormalities; multiple gestations; recurrent pregnancy loss.

Some of the techniques I use are advanced level ultrasound; prenatal diagnosis, including amniocentesis and CVS ability within our practice, fetal echocardiography, genetic counseling.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

My approach to patients is one that is committed, dedicated, and focused on detail. When I counsel a patient and/or a couple, I never forget that although I may be discussing a problem or situation that I have encountered many times, this is not the case for the patient. As most patients do not expect to discover that they have developed potentially significant problems for themselves or their fetuses, hearing difficult news is very stressful, confusing and often fear provoking. I always try to offer the most expert medical advice with care, compassion and understanding, which often extends beyond the completion pregnancy.

Describe some of your professional highlights.

I have many years of experience managing patients with complicated pregnancies, both in academic institutions and in private practice. Recently, I helped The Valley Hospital become the first hospital to achieve special Certification in Perinatal Care from the Joint Commission.
