    Philosophy of Care

    I believe in helping women learn about their bodies as a way of empowering them to be active participants in their health care. I love my work and consider it an honor to care for women at all stages of their lives. It is important to me to practice medicine that is evidence-based and I am always looking to the medical literature to answer questions and learn about new developments. The relationships I have built with patients and their families are the most meaningful aspect of my job. I recognize how special it is for them to trust me to take good care of them and I always work to provide the kind of care I would want for myself or a family member.
