I am an old-fashioned diagnostician; no, actually, I am a dinosaur. I do not have a six-page medical history form that is emailed to you before your first visit and then scanned into the computer. I ask you questions, in my compulsively ordered fashion, about your medical history, face-to-face.
When you call my office, you never hear, “press one for appointments, press two for billing.” I talk to patients in my consultation room after they are dressed and full of questions following an examination, no matter how trivial or complex the reason for the visit.
My education, training, credentials, and publications demonstrate that I am an expert in vaginal ultrasounds for abnormal bleeding, ovarian masses, fibroids, and, essentially, all things gynecological.
I seem to be the referral person for people who have been told they need surgery elsewhere but want more than just “a second opinion.” I developed a catheter to put a tablespoon of sterile saline into the uterus, so women with abnormal uterine bleeding can avoid unnecessary biopsies, dilations and curettage procedures, and hysterectomies.
I listen to patients. I use ultrasound liberally when solving problems. I partner with patients who want to be healthy and stay healthy. I believe in using experience, judgment, and individualization—not medicine by a “clinical pathway,” or what you might call “formulaic.”
I have been an examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, giving exams to those who are trying to become Board certified. I teach students and residents about obstetrics and gynecology. I lecture all over the world to doctors in practice. I am active in all aspects of gynecology. I welcome the opportunity to use my experience and expertise to help you, no matter how big or small your gynecologic concerns may be.
