I am a board certified Ob/Gyn in private practice since 2000. In addition to managing gynecologic problems and providing obstetrical care I also have a special interest in integrative and functional medicine.
Using my education from The Institute of Functional Medicine and the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine fellowship I utilize an integrative and functional medicine approach in my practice. Combining this with my over 20 years of conventional medical training and clinical experience I can offer a unique approach to managing many female concerns. Through this patient-centered approach attention is given to the patient as a whole to provide a personalized management plan; incorporating lifestyle changes, nutrition, natural hormones, botanicals and neutraceuticals for treatment. Many conditions can be managed with this approach including menopausal symptoms, PMS, sexual dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome, recurrent vaginitis, painful periods, irregular periods, and preconception care amongst other conditions. For more information on these consultations visit PERSONALIZED INTEGRATIVE/FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS CONSULTATION.
My own personal interest in physical and mental health and wellness drives my passion for providing excellent medical care and empowering women to take charge of their own health. My goal is to provide comprehensive health care and education to my patients and assist them in making wise health choices and informed medical decisions. The well being of my patient is my top priority while at the same time exhibiting compassion and understanding.
