About this doctor:

My medical practice encompasses the medically complex and deeply personal specialties of maternal fetal medicine and clinical genetics. I regard it as very important to communicate the scientific considerations for a medical decision as clearly as possible, and at the same time validate the individual woman’s inclusion of family, social, spiritual and resource elements into the formation of her choices for medical management. I view this approach as a partnership in care, a foundation for facing the challenges that bring an individual or a family to the practice of a maternal fetal medicine and genetics specialist.
