Care Philosophy
Pregnancy is a time of great joy for many families but it can also be a time of stress if there are any perceived issues or complications. I believe that it is my role to offer advanced maternal and fetal diagnostics/evaluations/procedures for families so that they can be empowered with the knowledge to know the best way to navigate the rest of their pregnancy. I believe in being a partner with the families to ensure the right outcome for all of the families we work with. I take great pride in working in a multidisciplinary team that includes Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Obstetrics, Pediatric Surgery, Neonatology, Nursing, and many other specialties.
