Personal Highlights
  • What are the unique skills you have as a clinician? I am an expert in vaginal surgery, which is the safest and most minimally invasive surgical approach, and with a relatively easy recovery as well. I believe in offering patients choices and I'm supportive of working with patients within whatever parameters they're comfortable with. I am also a great listener!
  • Outside of healthcare, what do you enjoy doing? I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family, especially my kids. And I love baseball. Go Dodgers!
