Hi! I have been a practicing board-certified OB-GYN since 1998 having previously been part of a large multispecialty group and a small group practice in Las Vegas and then Texarkana. I met my wife, Judy, a labor and delivery nurse, while we were working together. We have two daughters, Zoe & Blair, and a son, Ashton. Our family has been living in Frisco since opening my solo practice, Frisco Women's Health at Baylor Medical Center Frisco in 2009. I am originally from Brooklyn, NY, and attended the University of Maryland School of Medicine, then completed my OB/GYN residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch - Galveston.
I have the latest gynecologic surgical training, from da Vinci Robot-Assisted Hysterectomy and Myomectomy, to sling placement for urinary incontinence and all the most successful and safest in-office procedures. I keep up on all the latest procedures and hone my surgical skills further with each new case, always looking for a better way to limit surgical times while providing the best care possible.
My schedule is set to see 15-20 patients per day. I am committed to taking the time to listen and then address your physical and emotional concerns. I provide consultation with each new patient fully clothed. You are given the opportunity to get to know me, ask questions, allow me to explain what to expect and let me address all your concerns. Most patients and spouses find me easy to talk to, I like to share stories about my family whenever anyone is interested. I am always interested to hear how things are going for you at home and work. I am very detail-oriented, straight to the point, and a good listener.
I am a proponent of Vaginal Births after Cesarean Section (VBAC). I believe in being patient and letting nature take its course. I am supportive of natural childbirth and you may find the birthing tub and Nitrous Oxide at MCF to be helpful. I am not a huge fan of elective induction of labor, due to the increased risk of Cesarean Section but can accommodate individual requests. You will find all the physicians in our group to have a similar mindset.
My training at an academic Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program, along with my Internal Medicine background allows me to provide complete women’s healthcare. For many of my patients, I serve as their only physician. I treat colds, urinary tract infections, pregnancy, menstrual problems, difficulty conceiving, and everything in between. If your problem falls outside the scope of my knowledge I will refer you to only the best doctors in the area, the same physicians that I trust my family’s health to.
I look forward to meeting you.
