Additional Information

Special Clinical Interest

Pediatric/Adolescent Gynecology

I chose the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology because I liked the combination of surgery and primary care for women. The first baby I ever delivered was at the Cambridge Hospital as a medical student over 20 years ago and after that I was hooked on the specialty. I feel it is an honor to become part of the lives of the women I care for. I am always impressed by the strength and resiliency of women.

Being the Chief of an active department such as OB/GYN keeps me pretty busy, but in my spare time I enjoy traveling with my family and martial arts.
