“Obstetrics and gynecology combines everything I love about being a doctor...the ever-changing science and, most of all, the personal aspects of medicine. I enjoy getting to know my patients and have been fortunate to develop many friendships with the women in my care.

In my private practice, my team and I are better able to give you the time, personal attention, and compassion you should demand in your healthcare. I feel we do a great job of being responsive to our patients and staying focused on their needs. In Vicksburg, the privacy, comfort, and attention we provide make us a unique women’s care practice – a difference I hope you’ll appreciate.”
