"I’m passionate about providing patients with the information they need to see the whole picture, so that each woman is well-equipped to make the best decisions about her health. I firmly believe trust and open lines of communication are essential for a solid doctor-patient relationship. I do my best to work together with each patient and listen to her concerns to find the best way to address her unique needs. "
