General Info

About me

It's a blessing to do what you love in life. Gynecology and Obstetrics encompasses multiple specialties into one. This causes one to develop a full capacity of diagnosis, surgical skills and emotional abilities to treat a patient. I love reproductive endocrinology, obstetric surgery and assisting women of all ages
