Professional Statement
As a female obstetrician & gynecologist, I recognize the importance of providing the best personalized care for patients that encompass compassion, and comprehensive focused attention to all aspects of a woman's well being. I am blessed with the joy of delivering babies and recapturing the wonder of life on a daily basis. My own birth to my son Jaden reshaped the way I approach this momentous life changing moment. An ob/gyn plays a very unique role as a doctor by sharing the most intimate moments of all stages of a woman’s life – adolescence, childbearing, menopausal transition and beyond. I have been fortunate to receive my training from the country’s leading medical institutions and have spent the past ten years managing all medical and surgical health issues related to ob/gyn. I recognize that a balance of mind, body, and spirit are paramount to our wellness as women. I also believe that medical care at its best should focus not only on healing and treatment of disease, but also on prevention of illness and promotion of wellness. With this in mind, the relationship between patient and doctor as a partnership is essential to outstanding medical care for women. My goal is to continue to provide my patients with the highest quality and most up-to-date female health care in a compassionate environment where each staff member shares my goal of providing exceptional, personalized service.
