Get to Know Me
What are some of the specific conditions you treat?
I deliver comprehensive, high-quality care to women of all ages. From routine gynecologic care, including counseling on age-appropriate issues for women; to diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic issues, including fibroids, endometriosis, abnormal uterine bleeding, and sexually transmitted diseases; I strive to inform my patients about their bodies to help them make appropriate choices for their health.
What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?
Having trained during the early days of operative laparoscopy, I'm experienced at performing minimally invasive surgeries, including tubal sterilization, ovarian cystectomies and complex hysterectomies. I also perform a great deal of operative hysteroscopies to treat uterine polyps and fibroids in a minimally invasive manner. For those cases where it is indicated, open gynecologic surgery is also an option. I help my patients who need surgical management of their gynecologic problems recover quickly and with as little pain as possible.
What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
I believe that one of the most important aspects of practicing medicine is having the ability to communicate with patients. I listen carefully to what my patients tell me so that I can address their needs and concerns in both an individualized and evidence-based manner. I take pride in explaining normal and abnormal physiology to patients in a comprehensive way so that they can understand how their bodies are working in relation to their current condition(s).
