About Me

I specialize in providing care for women during their reproductive years and during menopause. My specific training enables me to perform minimally invasive surgery to treat benign gynecological conditions. These include fibroids, which are noncancerous growths in the uterus; endometriosis, which is the growth of uterus tissue outside the uterus; and ovarian cysts. I also offer evaluation in regard to abnormal Pap test results, colposcopies, office procedures, and family planning.

As a physician and surgeon, I have the tools to diagnose and treat women but, more importantly, I can give them the information and resources they need to make the best decisions. In my practice, I aim not only to educate and inform, but also to empower and support each woman.

The biggest privilege of being a physician is being a part of my patients’ lives, however big or small my role may be. Every day I spend with my patients, I am reminded of how incredible and inspiring they are.
