I love the long term relationships I have with my patients and caring for them through all phases of their lives. It is a privilege to do the work I do and I consider myself very lucky to love my chosen profession. I"m now delivering the babies of "babies" I delivered!! - its a wonderful experience.
I have been in private practice for almost 30 years and feel privileged to take care of my patients. I have also tried to be an advocate for women and women's health issues by working on the state and national level with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology the Virginia Department of Health on many important issues including infant mortality, the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship, and patient safety issues. I also work with the Sentara Quailty Care Network to find innovative ways to improve patient care.
