Commitment to Patient Care 

I am very passionate about helping women feel better about themselves. Whether it is chronic pain or the disappointment of infertility, I feel strongly about helping women improve their quality of life. Infertility is a sensitive issue that patients sometimes do not feel comfortable discussing. Time, compassion, and developing an appropriate rapport with the patient helps overcome many of these barriers. I believe that the needs of the patient come first. I make it a priority to treat my patients with compassion and respect. My goal is always to have them involved in decision making.
