I choose the field of Gynecology, Urogynecology, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery because of the significant impact I get to make in the lives of women and their health.

I also enjoy getting to know my patients as a person–aside from just being a “patient”. I like to hear stories about their family, kids, vacations, hobbies, and work.
