For this past decade of independent practice, I have enjoyed building relationships with my patients and participating in their health care decisions in every stage of their reproductive life as well as addressing menstrual and other gynecological issues. I chose obstetrics and gynecology because it gave me the opportunity to specialize in both the medical and surgical management of one specific system. For most patients, the female reproductive/gynecological system interacts with other organ systems and in some patients, this interaction is significantly detrimental. Therefore, collaboration with other specialties is essential to treating a person in whole not just as a sum of their parts.
