As a pediatric gynecologist, I have a special interest in the health of girls and young women. I specialize in pediatric and adolescent gynecology, congenital reproductive abnormalities and pelvic surgical reconstruction. I care for patients with bleeding disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis and other gynecologic concerns.
I enjoy caring for and empowering girls. My work focuses on optimizing their quality of life and improving their reproductive and fertility outcomes. My approach involves treating patients and families the way I would want my kids and family to be treated. I cherish the long-term relationships I have with patients and families.
In my practice, I prioritize education as an integral part of care. Patients and families who understand the risks and benefits of healthcare are more inclined to actively participate in developing the plan of care. Our team is dedicated and knowledgeable, and they are strong partners in the care of girls and young women. We share mutual goals and respect, and we aim for the very best outcomes for our patients.
In my research, I am trying to gain a better appreciation for the long-term outcomes of the care we provide for infants, girls and teenagers — especially those relating to reproductive outcomes.
When I have free time, I love to travel, spend time with my family and run for stress relief. I look for the positive in every day!
