Every patient deserves to understand her problem and have the opportunity to choose the treatment most appropriate for her situation. By listening to each patient, performing a thorough evaluation including physical examination, and explaining the condition in detail, I hope to help each woman achieve her goals for improvement. I am happy to recommend nonsurgical as well as surgical treatments when appropriate, and spend as much time with each patient as she needs to be certain she is comfortable with the explanations provided and the options she is given for treating her condition. When surgery is appropriate, I strive to provide a minimally invasive option to treat the condition in order to allow return to normal activities as soon as possible.
I believe in practicing the art of medicine by learning about my patients. I received excellent training from skilled mentors and have sought out the best teachers to help me hone my skills. I believe in listening to my patients and doing my best to assure that we have communicated accurately. I am an excellent diagnostician precisely for that reason. I am also open to learning from my patients as well as my journals and educational seminars. I have designed my practice to optimize patient treatment and understanding of their conditions.
