I became a medical doctor to help people. My interest and extensive research in chronic pelvic pain has allowed me to help those women that have suffered with this problem for years. I enjoy the challenge of working with my patients and offer the most current medical treatment options to relieve their medical symptoms. It is a rewarding feeling to know that I can give women a better, more productive quality of life.

As a Medical Doctor I am inspired to share my knowledge and experience with my staff, colleagues and medical students. Every day I enjoy learning from my patients and my staff. By listening and understanding the concerns of my patients, this allows me to become a better physician as well as a good teacher. I will never stop learning and advancing my knowledge in this expanding and ever-changing field of medicine.

I have had the honor of traveling all over the world to talk with patients and other colleagues that share my interest in learning as much as possible about chronic pelvic pain. It is exciting for me to look ahead at what is yet to be discovered about all we do not know in treating this medical disease. I know my experience is making a difference in uncovering the mystery of why so many women suffer in silence.

I am also thankful for my staff that have accepted the challenge to care for patients that have suffered with chronic pelvic pain. Their understanding and compassion for these patients has allowed me to focus on treatments while they comfort my patients and reassure them.
