I'm a gynecological oncologist, which means that I did specialized training after an OB-GYN residency to focus on cancers of the female reproductive tract. These include uterine, cervical, vulvar, vaginal and ovarian cancers. I love being able to practice medicine in the state where I grew up. After returning from my residency at Dartmouth, I realized how well I relate to people here in Central Kentucky. I grew up around these people, they're who I know.
I place a lot of importance on making the patient and their family feel comfortable. I really enjoy hearing the variety of replies that I get from patients when I ask how they spend their day-to-day and just hearing about the unique aspects of their lives. I see patients here locally as well as from rural parts of the state, and I think that's one of the things that I enjoy most. I see patients of all ages who are from a variety of backgrounds, education levels and social circumstances, and I really enjoy that aspect.
