Provider Bio

From the Provider

“When I see a woman in clinic, I want her to feel at ease with her issues, comfortable in her care and confident in her treatment plan. Medicine and health care are a team effort and I want all my patients to know and feel that they are the most important part of that team. I am amazed every day at the strength and power of the patients I see and the varied roles they play in their families, workplaces and communities. I want to do whatever I can to help each person access the resources she has in herself by building knowledge and confidence through our partnership.”
