“I have a particular interest in obstetrics, its blessings and its difficulties; however, in gynecology, I enjoy contributing to a woman’s awareness of her body and assisting her to care for it to her best ability. I enjoy forming trustworthy and educated relationships with women throughout their lives. Having the privilege to provide care in the fields of Obstetrics and Gynecology is a gift. Arbor ObGyn is a wonderful environment in which to practice.”

Menopause Management / Education

I had a great experience and good visit with my provider, I appreciate the time she took to answer my questions and offer alternative supplements I could take to help with my symptoms. I found my provider to be professional and well Informed. I was hesitant to say anything, but The Lady who took my blood , maybe she was having a bad day, she wasn’t very friendly, and was sorta curt with her instructions to sign in and come in to get blood drawn. I was nervous and the whole process with her felt like a military drill, it was sorta insensitive and rude. I’ve never got such a big bruise on my arm, after having blood drawn and the experience sorta hurt to be honest. She wrapped the cotton ball and gauge too tight on my arm, it was uncomfortable and over kill. I’d prefer for future blood draws to see another hematologist. The front desk staff was very helpful and super friendly.
