About this doctor:

Women’s health concerns such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse are sensitive topics that are often understandably difficult to discuss, not only with family but also with your doctor. I look to change that, giving patients the time they need to openly communicate their feelings and medical concerns. I am honored to take care of women throughout all stages of their adult life and seek to provide the best patient-centered, evidence-based care that keeps each individual’s health goals in mind.
