"I've always enjoyed spending lots of time with my patients - educating, counseling, and explaining to them the various treatment options they can choose from. I include them in the decision-making process as much as possible, because it's their health, and listening to their input is part of offering the very best for my patients."
A Solid Education
"There's no question that a strong education makes a difference in the quality of care you receive. I continue to learn every day, with every new patient I meet. And a good doctor continues to learn throughout his career."

"Some of the important things I've learned about being a doctor haven't come from books. Each patient is unique and has her own concerns. Taking the time to listen to those concerns and answer women's questions about their care is a critical part of being an excellent doctor.
