Philosophy of Care

My passion as a gynecologist is to use my skills, expertise and 30 years of experience to improve the quality of life of my patients. I am able to help women experiencing problems in many areas including hormonal imbalances, menopausal issues, pelvic and lower abdominal pain, irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding, and pelvic organ prolapse. Many women suffer needlessly, assuming that their problems are “normal” or “nothing can be done”. My greatest professional joy is to improve the quality of my patients’ lives by helping them with these issues.
