What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
Initially it was just a suggestion by one of the guidance counselors in high school. Eventually the idea grew on me and the rest, as they say, is history.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
The thing I love the most about my specialty is caring for women in general. I chose my specialty because not only could I diagnose problems, but in the majority of the cases I could also see my patients through them, whether the solution is a medical or surgical one.
How do you connect with your patients?
I feel that I connect very well with my patients and am disappointed if they do not appreciate the efforts that I have or am willing to put in for them.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
I am very physically active and enjoy tennis, skiing, bicycling, basketball and traveling. I also like gardening but have not had enough time to indulge into this hobby.
What is your advice for your patients?
There is no generic advice I give to all my patients but I do try to have my patients leave feeling better than when they came in to the office
