"My professional goal is to combine the experience I’ve gained in the last 25 years with the best information available to help women take optimal care of themselves. Women have a lot of options when it comes to having babies, managing fertility, dealing with menstrual problems, and navigating through menopause. I strive to partner with my patients in a compassionate, honest and trustworthy manner. We own and manage our own small practice so that we can give women the personal attention they deserve. "
