Thank you for visiting my profile. It is a privilege to be involved in your medical care. I am pleased to be involved in the expansion of services at Caribou Memorial Hospital. Being from Blackfoot, my family and I are enjoying being back in Idaho and enjoying the beauty of the area, and interacting with the people.

I am a specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and did my training in Pennsylvania. The experience I had in obstetrics training has helped me in dealing with anything from routine to high risk pregnancies. Also, I am able to deal with unexpected emergencies during labor and delivery. Some of the obstetric services I provide include: external cephalic version, vaginal birth after cesarean(VBAC), and operative vaginal delivery. One of my passions is avoiding unnecessary cesarean deliveries in a safe manner.

Being a gynecologist, I also provide specialist care in medical and surgical women’s health issues. Many women have been helped with my treatments and surgeries in areas like: urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, heavy periods and pelvic pain.

If you or someone you know has an issue, please come and visit with me and let’s see what we can do to help.
