Overview

As your doctor, I understand how valuable your time is. And I want to let you know how much I appreciate the time you take to be as healthy as you can be. To thank you for all your hard work, my colleagues and I have developed My Doctor Online to make it easier for you and your family to get answers to your questions and take care of many of your health care needs. Background I was born during a New England snow storm. My practical, "Yankee" parents endured most of my mother's labor in the parking lot since, if she were admitted after midnight, she would not be charged for an extra hospital day! All went well in spite of this, and I had a happy childhood, the second of four kids. I always loved school, and was a competitive "high achiever." I didn't decide upon medicine, however, until I was a junior at UCI, when I was inspired by Christian Barnard's autobiography. It was then off to Vanderbilt for medical school. While there, I was always one who loved surgery, and even considered cardiothoracic surgery for a time. I decided upon OBGYN, however, because I love the combination of being able to do fascinating operations, while still having the privilege of developing long and personal relationships with my patients. I enjoy working with women, and have never regretted my decision. I have two kids and two big dogs. We live very informally on a big, rustic ranch, complete with natural flora and fauna, including the occasional rattlesnake. I enjoy Obstetrics and Gynecology because it allows me to combine the advantage of long-term relationships with my patients with the challenge of performing necessary surgical operations. Working in "labor and delivery" allows me to be a part of each new family's joy, as well as the satisfaction of working with the bright, hard working professionals, midwives, nurses and technicians, who dedicate their careers to service in this fast-paced, intensive care environment After graduating from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, I completed my residency at the University of California at Irvine. There, I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Dr Richard Klekman, who is the Chairman of the Dept of OBGYN at Kaiser Santa Rosa today.
