I work with women who have been diagnosed with female cancers including cervical, endometrial, ovarian and uterine cancers. I strive to provide care for all women that I would expect to give my own family member. The medical journey for patients with these cancers can be very difficult and I extend my care and concern to them. I work with them to become a survivor with my medical, surgical and emotional support.
