About Us

At Gynecology & Fertility P.C. we believe our patients benefit when care is provided by women physicians who understand what they are going through. We empathize with our patient’s stresses, fears, concerns and joys. We take time to get to know them. We listen. We understand. Our goal is to give our patients the support they need to stay happy and healthy through every stage of life.



Gynecology and Fertility PC FAQ

I’m ready to start a family. Is there anything special I need to consider?
We suggest a preconception consult to review health history and current medications. Appropriate vitamins and supplements will be recommended for this exciting time in your life.

I have tried to get pregnant for 6 months with no success. What should I do?
We recommend any woman under the age of 35 allow 12 months to become pregnant while any woman over 35 should call for an appointment after 6 months of attempting pregnancy. Our office will consult with you on the appropriate evaluation and treatment that may be necessary for both you and your partner. This treatment may include medications, ultrasound, blood work and artificial insemination.

My teenage daughter is not having any problems, but at what point should she see a gynecologist?
There is not a set age. You might consider having her be seen at the time she graduates from high school or earlier if she does have menstrual problems or decides to become sexually active. The first pap screen for cervical cancer is now recommended at age 21.

I’m pregnant and nervous! I’m wondering what testing might be available during early pregnancy to alleviate my anxiety.
We offer 1st and 2nd trimester screening for chromosomal abnormalities. We can also screen for certain neural tube defects and other abnormalities with ultrasound and blood work. We usually get a good look at baby’s growth and development between 18 and 22 weeks with our in-office 3-D Ultrasound.

I’m finished having children now. I want permanent birth control but don’t want to be hospitalized. Do I have any options?
We can perform a permanent sterilization procedure right in our office called ESSURE® that requires no incisions or general anesthesia.

I’m having heavy, irregular periods. What are some of my treatment options besides a hysterectomy?
The Mirena® IUD and the Implanon ® are hormonal devices that will make periods lighter or possibly stop uterine bleeding for 3 to 5 years. We also perform both Novasure® and Hydrothermal ablations in our office under local anesthesia. These procedures decrease uterine bleeding by destroying the uterine lining. They are intended for women who are finished having children.

I’m a terrible at remembering to take my pill but still want more children in the next few years. Are there any more reliable contraceptive options available?
The Implanon® is a small rod which contains hormones and last for up to 3 years. The Implanon® is inserted under the skin on the inside of the upper arm. The Mirena® IUD is also available and lasts 5 years. Both are quickly reversible should you desire to become pregnant sooner or can be replaced at the time of removal for longer contraceptive coverage.

How do you like to spend your free time?
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two young sons and a husband who are always on the go and we all enjoy spending time outdoors, playing, swimming, doing just about anything that we can do to get wet or dirty or cause us to have more laundry that needs to be done! I also enjoy photography, reading, cooking, and staying active.

What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about helping women of all ages take an active role in managing their health and making informed decisions. I feel very strongly about educating women and helping them understand what is most beneficial for where they are at in their lifespan. In doing this, together we can make decisions that empower them and help them achieve a great quality of life.

What inspired you to become a Nurse Practitioner?
I love the relationships that I develop with patients and the experiences I am fortunate enough to share with them. When I was a registered nurse working in the intensive care unit, I did not always have a lot of time with my patients. I often wondered where patients went and how or what they were doing when they left the hospital. As a nurse practitioner I get to see patients again and again and catch up with them and share life experiences and memories.

Where were you born and raised?
