I believe in treating patients the same as I would wish for myself or my family members, with honesty and compassion. I am very straight forward and will tell you, from my 25 years of experience what I have seen to be the best approach and that has the best results. I will entertain other approaches and refer you to a specialist if I feel their expertise is what is needed or desired. I feel that this is a collaboration and that it is important for us to have a dialogue always regarding health and treatment plan. I never want a patient to leave my office feeling as if they don't understand what we discussed about their health. I would hope that that patient would call back and ask for an explanation, if needed, instead of feeling confused. I have been fortunate enough to have had a great practice for the last 21 years in Lake Forest. I have seen many of my patients from day 1 and now take care of the young women I have delivered.
