Though medical practice has changed considerably throughout the years, I continue to strive to achieve a balance of traditional and current philosophies when caring for my patients. The same challenges — whether it be infertility, high-risk pregnancy, surgery or caring for the elderly — are as rewarding today as they were at the beginning of my career. Knowing I make a difference in my patients' lives every day is a most gratifying experience and reaffirms the choice I made to practice Obstetrics and Gynecology.
It is a distinct privilege to be the first to actually "touch" a new baby. My yearning to make a difference in one small way in the lives of someone else is fulfilled with each delivery I attend. To place a delicate new life in the arms of a new mother and to see a brand new father shed a tear of ultimate joy at the birth of his child is a most rewarding aspect of my life. I now have the honor of delivering second generation babies.
The decision to become an ob/gyn came easily for me. There was no other field that brought me such joy and fulfillment as a physician and as a woman. To help and support women through the full circle of birth to menopause and beyond has helped me grow as a physician and a person. I now appreciate helping to bring a new baby into the world, as I recently became a mother and went through the experience myself. A woman's ob/gyn is not only her doctor but her friend, her confidant and her source of stability and balance. It is an honor for me to have this role in a woman's life. My patients at Women's Health Care Group have taught me and helped me become the physician I am today. It is these experiences, along with my knowledge, technical skill and compassionate personality that I offer to my patients and the community.
I have always had a strong interest in helping others, but my volunteer work experiences with underserved communities in the Philippines cemented my desire to practice medicine. I had later on realized that women's health care was an area I was drawn to. It is rewarding to have the ability to relate to a woman and her various concerns throughout her reproductive and postmenopausal years. It is a pleasure to be a part of Women's Health Care Group, and I will continue to strive to provide the highest quality care to our patients.
