Care Philosophy

I adore my job, my career, my life's work; it is more than I ever imagined. Becoming an obstetrician/gynecologist is a perfect fit for my personality. My wide-ranging interests and hobbies, enable me to strike an instant rapport with patients. Patients invite me into their lives and allow me to be an influential person in their decisions. I enjoy forming relationships that encourage patients to make healthy choices and to be involved in their health care decisions.
