About this doctor:

Philosophy of care:
I am dedicated towards providing the highest quality of care to my patients, both the mother and her baby. My additional training in high-risk, complicated pregnancies has allowed me to dedicate my life’s work towards treating and helping patients with pregnancies that could potentially be affected by either preexisting medical conditions or newly diagnosed conditions that could change the outcome of the pregnancy. I believe in educating the mother and taking measures that can reduce the risk to her and her baby. By doing so, I aim to guide the mom through a successful pregnancy – what I consider to be one of the most wonderful journeys in life.
