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.

    Clinical Interests

    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.
