“I have a particular interest in obstetrics, its blessings and its difficulties; however, in gynecology, I enjoy contributing to a woman’s awareness of her body and assisting her to care for it to her best ability. I enjoy forming trustworthy and educated relationships with women throughout their lives. Having the privilege to provide care in the fields of Obstetrics and Gynecology is a gift. Arbor ObGyn is a wonderful environment in which to practice.”
