“I chose the field of obstetrics and gynecology because it allows me to be involved with women in all stages of their lives – from adolescence through childbirth to menopause. I can offer my knowledge to women in each of these phases, not only from the perspective of a medical doctor but more importantly, from the perspective of my personal experience.”
