As a medical student, I had the opportunity to follow an ob/gyn physician in practice. I loved the diversity of the care he was able to provide and the relationships he developed over the years with his patients. He often knew the patients and their family without having to look at their medical record.
I love being able to care for women throughout all stages of their life. Helping families through pregnancy and childbirth has always been a very exciting and emotionally rewarding experience for me. At the same time, I’m passionate about minimally invasive surgery and being able to provide state of the art surgical care.
My relationship with my patients is the reason I chose to be an obstetrician/gynecologist rather than a surgical subspecialist. I enjoy getting to know my patients beyond their “diagnoses” and medical problems.
I’ve really enjoyed the culinary revolution here in Austin so trying new, inventive restaurants is high on the list. I also developed a running “habit” about 7 years ago and have been running and training for marathons ever since.
Patients can expect a courteous staff, a thorough review of their history and the opportunity to have all their questions addressed without feeling rushed.
I think the ability to have a positive impact on people’s health and their family has been the favorite part of my career as a physician.
Aside from running, I enjoy being in the kitchen cooking.
