Overview

I chose a career in obstetrics and gynecology so I could take care of women and assist them through all the different stages of life. My relationship with patients often starts with that first visit to the gynecologist and then progresses to contraception and planning a pregnancy. Caring for patients through infertility or complications in pregnancy then moves on to annual exams and postmenopausal concerns like hormone replacement therapy or abnormal bleeding. It is wonderful to develop a personal relationship with patients and be a part of their life through all these new events. I think this relationship and the personal touch that I bring to communication about patients’ concerns makes this a rewarding and successful interaction for both me and my patients. I love this field of medicine because there’s variety, but also a focus on just women’s health. I particularly like caring for women during pregnancy, abnormal pap smear management, managing contraception, and laparoscopic gynecologic surgery.

Specialities

  • General Surgery

    A general surgeon is a medical professional who performs surgery on patients. General surgeons typically perform common surgeries and have attended college and medical school to learn the skills needed to perform them successfully. They also care for their patients before and after operations and can give an accurate prognosis after the surgery is complete and the patient has had time to heal.

  • Obstetrics Gynecology

    A Gynecologist is a medical professional who has the education and training necessary to diagnose and treat illnesses and diseases that affect the female reproductive organs. Most modern gynecologists are also obstetricians. They can help with sexual dysfunction, infertility, STDs, and common infections and diseases.
