Q: What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?
A: I genuinely enjoy working with everyone on my staff—we have an amazing team! I also look forward to spending time with patients I have known for years, and meeting new patients and helping them with their medical issues. My favorite part of being a physician is the smiles on women’s faces after we have solved GYN issues, and their quality of life has sky-rocketed. My patients’ happiness brings me incredible joy and drives me to keep bettering myself as a physician, both in knowledge base and incorporating new skills and treatment options. I’m honored to have received “Top Doctor” recognition by Washingtonian magazine every year since 2012.
Q: What was a major turning point in your life and/or career?
A: Making the leap to start my GYN-only practice 11 years ago. I knew exactly how I wanted the office to look and run; patients are welcomed into a spa-like atmosphere, helping them relax and enjoy their visit. Last fall, we expanded our office to include an operating room, ultrasound suite and additional exam rooms and provider offices. Patients benefit from the convenience of having their labs drawn and ultrasound performed in our office. If they need a procedure under intravenous sedation, we do it right in our office.
Q: What advice would you give your younger self?
A: There will be bumps along the road but using your gifts to serve the women in your practice, and helping those suffering from severe gynecological issues, will be immensely gratifying.
