I have been a practicing gynecologist for more than 20 years at InterMed, a physician owned and led multispecialty group in Portland. I completed my undergraduate work at Yale in Molecular Biophysics snd Biochemistry. I completed my medical training at Columbia and returned to Yale for my residency in Ob/Gyn and fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery.

Though I previously provided obstetric care, I now focus on gynecologic care, fertility and women’s health. I have special interests in ambulatory surgery, the menopausal transition, infertility, fibroids, pelvic pain, sexual function, aging, preventative care and positive health habits.
I offer many treatment options and minimally invasive procedures for gynecologic problems and symptoms. I value an individualized approach to patient care. I view myself as a partner to develop care plans to meet a person’s goals. I strive to get accurate information to patients so they can be empowered to make informed decisions about their own healthcare.
