Providing personalized, compassionate care, the team works closely with nutritionists, obstetricians, midwives, gynecologists, and other specialists as needed to assure smooth continuity of care.
“I do my best to build trusting, long-lasting doctor-patient relationships so women can feel safe and empowered to talk about what’s really going on with them. This level of sharing enables us to work as a team to get to the root of any problem, prevent further issues, and meet our patients’ personal wellness goals.”
