My health care philosophy is based upon identifying the patient's needs and being dedicated to helping women achieve their health care goals through forming a relationship based upon mutual respect and trust.
My role as the obstetrician/gynecologist is to provide compassionate and caring medical services to all patients and treat patients like I would members of my own family.
Listening is key to the start of our medical and personal relationship and I strive to value your input in my effort to identify your individual needs.
My office staff is committed to providing professional and courteous services to you in our comfortable and private office setting.
Your health and empowering you in your health care decisions is my focus and goal.
Having had a baby boy myself in the Spring of 2012, I understand first hand how pregnancy is a time of excitement and anticipation for all of the family. I strive to ensure that you are treated with dignity, compassion, and respect at all times.
As a National Health Service Corps scholar, I moved to Reno, Nevada from St. Paul, Minnesota in the summer of 2006 to fulfill my service obligation at The Pregnancy Center. I spent the past 8 years serving underprivileged women and their families and have delivered over 400 babies per year since that time.
In addition, I have built up a dedicated and loyal private practice following and integrated minimally invasive gynecologic procedures such as Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy, ESSURE, and Hydrothermal endometrial ablation into my practice.
Late this summer, I was given the opportunity to start my own private practice and to share office space and staff with Dr. Rafaela Hernandez, another well established ob/gyn in the Reno, Nevada medical community. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve women and families of all ages at my new office location.
I have special interests in adolescent gynecology, menopausal health, high risk obstetrics, abnormal PAP and colposcopy, as well as infertility treatments.
My husband Brett and I are avid hikers and skiiers and we love to explore Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We are hoping to get our young son, Alex, who is 2 1/2 years old, out on skies for his first season up at Mount Rose this year. I am interested in fitness and positive thinking and strive to keep myself in excellent mental and physical shape through running, yoga, and meditation.
