My obstetrics and gynecology practice focuses on caring for pregnant women who have delivered premature babies in one or more previous pregnancies. I specialize in treating patients who have had a pregnancy that resulted in premature birth in the second or third trimester of pregnancy.

Premature birth is the leading cause of infant mortality. This high level of specialized care for women who have experienced such problems is very important. The right treatment makes all the difference.

There are many things I appreciate about my work and about working here at Ohio State. One of the things I’m especially grateful for is that we take care of everyone, with no exceptions.

When I'm not at work, I like to relax with my family, travel and read.
