Philosophy Of Care

I chose to practice in OB/GYN because I care deeply about women and the health issues they experience at each stage of their lives. My goal is to provide the evidence-based standard of care, delivered with compassion, to earn each patient’s trust, and to form deep patient relationships through my care and our shared decision making. Any given day I see women from their teen years, to expectant mothers through grandmothers in the 80s. One of my greatest joys is in relationships lasting through multiple generations of a family, a mom referring her daughter, and then her grand-daughter. I work to earn this trusted confidence every day, whether I’m delivering a new family member, performing surgery, providing preventive care, or advocating for their well-being.
