What do you want prospective patients to understand about you and your style or approach to medicine?
"My Christian faith strongly influences my approach to medicine. I see my vocation as a calling to serve, and strive to go the extra mile for my patients. I am passionate about women's health and preventative care. I approach health holistically using a variety of treatment techniques to help women achieve optimal health. As the world of medicine is rapidly evolving, I make every effort to stay up to date with the latest therapies. I do not recommend or offer treatments without consistent, reliable data proving their safety and effectiveness. I want my work to be grounded in truth and integrity.
I find incredible joy and purpose in caring for women. I appreciate the rawness of an obstetrical or gynecological visit with my patients. My hope is all women feel valued and loved during their appointment with me. "
