Philosophy of care

I believe in a collaborative approach to the care of my patients. I work hard to discuss and educate my patients so they can be involved in decision making about their own medical care. After almost 30 years in practice, I have enjoyed the privilege of taking care of women through every stage of their lives and now take care of some of their adult daughters. I am lucky to work with my colleagues at Seattle Ob/Gyn who share in my desire to provide the very best care to all of our patients.
