"I have three beautiful children of my own, so I understand how important it is to have an obstetrician you can count on. In fact, having healthy babies begins before you become pregnant. It starts with quality gynecological care and a healthy lifestyle."
A Solid Education
"My education taught me the medical side of women's health care, but there's another side of OB/GYN care that can't be taught, and that's the human side. It is the side that deals with the emotions and feelings associated with women's health problems. I'd like to think that listening to my patients and understanding their needs and concerns is my real specialty."
