Welcome to my Web page. I’m glad to have this opportunity to tell you about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born and raised in California and did my residency in Ob/Gyn in Boston. I love education, and part of what I enjoy about being an Ob/Gyn is the opportunity to educate my members about their health. I am married and have two daughters. My family helps keep me centered, gives me energy, and reminds me how lucky I am on a daily basis.
I consider my job to a little like that of a consultant who offers you information, and helps you decide on a treatment plan that works for you. I’d like to provide you a safe environment where you feel comfortable asking questions. I feel I’ve succeeded if you leave with a full understanding of what we discussed, or we’ve at least had an open dialogue and we can continue the conversation. I feel very strongly about education, and spend much of my time teaching and doing medical simulation for doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff. We focus on teamwork and communication, and strive to make the hospital a safer place for you and your family.
I do my best to keep my life balanced between work and family. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy the outdoors, try to stay fit and active, and am always looking for new book recommendations! My family and I enjoy camping, traveling, and being silly. I’m grateful for my family, my job, and our health and I strive to teach my daughters to be grateful for what they have.
