My dad told me 32 years ago, when I first started my practice, that I should treat my patients as if they were my precious jewels. I think that is good advice and I try not to lose sight of that in my practice everyday.

When I first started out in practice, I was one of the few young female physicians in the downriver area who delivered babies. I developed a big female patient population & delivered babies for 10 years. Now as I've gotten older...so have my patients and I am going through the same change of life with those mothers. And the babies I delivered are now having their own babies. It is truly the circle of life and awesome to witness. I still do a great deal of gynecology and offer procedures such as colposcopy, endometrial biopsy, LEEP as well as dermatology skin biopsies.
Our clinic has extended office hours on Monday & Thursday evenings until 7pm. We have voice mail that instructs patients in cases of emergency & directs them to a message center that will contact the PCP that is on call if necessary.
Payments, including co-pays, co-insurances, deductibles and self-pay, are expected at time of service. For your convenience, cash, checks and credit/debit cards are accepted.
The patients are asked to fill out a medical history and obtain a medical release from prior physicians as well as hospital records.
