I strive to be a good listener. I enjoy getting to know and understanding my patients not just in terms of their clinical situations, but the entire person, including family, culture and sense of self. I have found that investing the extra time doing this helps greatly, whether someone is blessed with excellent health or has multiple medical problems.
I encourage my patients to challenge me. There are no 'stupid questions' in my practice. If I am unsure of the answer, I will research it. Medicine - especially my area - is constantly changing. Learning is continuous. Sometimes a question opens a new door!
Specific services and procedures I specialize in include: general women's health care, evaluation and treatment of abnormal cytology, bleeding abnormalities (vaginal/cervical/uterine), obstetrical care and delivery (normal, high risk, normal delivery, c/section), laparoscopy (diagnostic, operative), contraception, menopause care and gynecology surgery.
After earning my medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago, IL., I went on to complete my obstetrics and gynecology residency at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, IL. I am board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, kids and grandson. Additionally, I enjoy aviation as a private pilot, amateur radio, automobile restoration, music and spending time with friends.
