After completing my OB/GYN residency at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center, I practiced in Virginia at Fort Belvoir. I joined the Capital Women’s Care team and began treating our wonderful patients.
Currently, I serve as the Medical Director for the Maryland Surgery Center for Women and as the Vice-Chairman of the OB/Gyn Department at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring.
There are many benefits of being able to help my patients, but I especially enjoy being part of the solution that helps my patients experience an improved quality of life. Being able to ‘fix’ the pain experienced from fibroids, heavy periods, cramps, and urine loss is greatly rewarding to me.
My patients see big improvements in quality of life with the advances in minimally invasive surgery. Smaller incisions used for laparoscopy and other minimally invasive techniques allow faster recoveries and with much less pain than with the traditional single larger incisions.
Minimally invasive surgery now allows my patients to have outpatient procedures and recover in the comfort of your own home instead of longer multi-day hospital stays as in the past.
Besides the gynecological part of my part of my practice ~ I love helping women become mothers, for the first time or the tenth! Being able to deliver babies and participate in the joy experienced by the family is awesome and rewarding. It just never gets old!
My Kids Love Deep Creek Lake
My wife and I don’t like to be bored! Our daughter and two sons help make sure that never happens. I am the ‘travel planner’ in the family and the five of us have seen some amazing places and enjoyed doing some “really cool stuff” (per my kids). But…we don’t need to be in different time zones to have fun. We also like to stay close by and enjoy our getaways in Deep Creek Lake. This is the place where my wife can count on me to do what she is frequently telling me to do – slow down and relax!
I look forward to meeting you.
