Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

At each office visit, I always spend the extra time necessary to actively listen to my patients about their gynecologic or urinary concerns and how it impacts their overall health. After all, you know your body best. My task is to integrate your medical history and physical findings with my knowledge and experience to determine the most likely diagnosis for you. Later, when deciding on your treatment plan, I believe in the ideal that less is more. My approach to individualized patient care is to start with the safest treatment options and, as required, progress to more advanced methods.Read more
