Philosophy of Care:
As a specialist in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, my care philosophy is to listen earnestly and work collaboratively with patients to match treatment options, both medical and surgical, with their goals. I deliver the highest quality care and communicate openly and honestly. While I embrace innovation, I also value tradition, especially tried-and-true options with the highest level of evidence.
