About Me

My practice in obstetrics and gynecology includes collaborating with a diverse group of professionals and roles. As a faculty member, I am an educator who teaches students, residents and other physicians from all over the country.

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I meet and care for a variety of people. I like to engage my patients and educate them about their care. This helps them to better understand what is going on, including their treatment choices.

I have always joked that the longest I ever had to wait for something is nine months (pregnancy). However, I find myself taking a more holistic approach to my medical practice. I focus on long-term health outcomes because my goal is to have women live to the fullest of their capacity.

Many of the patients at Ohio State are educated and engaged in their own health care. This makes it enjoyable to discuss treatment options with them and make good healthcare decisions.

After hours, I stay involved and active with my family. We especially enjoy visiting new places.

He was SO attentive. He asked so many details - even my husband's name so he can refer to him by name. He made my comfort #1 - I'm VERY modest and without asking made sure I was able to talk to him fully dressed. It helped me and my anxiety a LOT.
