Patients should know…

I seek to build a relationship with all of my patients. I care deeply about you as a whole person, and I believe all the aspects of your life are important to your treatment as a whole person. Please never be afraid to tell me how you are really doing or feeling, or about the times going on in your life, because often they have more of an impact on your health than you know.

I am passionate about this patient population. The patients are amazing. I love providing care and education for women during their reproductive lifecycle.
