The practice has grown and evolved, yet where has the time gone? I retired from deliveries but still enjoy seeing patients in the first trimester and getting them off to a good start.
I often say that empathy is a great teacher, and I find particular success in treating menopause! I am also very excited to report the amazing results we are achieving with the Mona Lisa Laser for vaginal dryness and discomfort in menopause and other skin conditions, such as Lichen Sclerosus. Experience does matter and I have performed well over 220 MLTLs. Patients report “This is an amazing procedure, truly life changing!” giving it an 8-10 improvement, even one 10/10! I believe our success comes from addressing symptoms with multiple interventions, giving the best and most long lasting results.
I also enjoy being able to mentor students who go on to become OB/GYNs, nurses and Physician Assistants. My current MA is # 7, and off to P.A.school next fall.
Most importantly, I am grateful to be able to continue to practice independently. It certainly has its challenges and drawbacks, but every day I am reminded why I do what I do- for my patients, my employees, my friends and family.
