I love that in Obstetrics and Gynecology we can provide medical care as primary care physicians, as surgeons, and can be involved in all stages of life.

I empathize and sympathize with my patients while maintaining objectivity in management of patient disease processes. I always try to establish good rapport with the patient.

I like to empower them to take care of themselves and be knowledgeable regarding their medical care because knowledge is power.
