Personal profile

Research Interests

As a women's health provider I enjoy caring for women during all aspects of their life. From routine gynecology, pre-conception, obstetrical care, through menopause. Having a comprehensive and continued relationship with my patients is the best part of my work. In addition to routine ob/gyn care, I have special interests in contraception and minimally invasive surgery.

I am very interested in contraception, specifically its use, efficacy, and adherence/choice, among the overweight and obese female population. Other research interests include contraception among bariatric surgery patients, postpartum contraception, and pregnancy among overweight/obese women.
