I am a physician who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology

I am a rural, generalist obstetrician and gynecologist. Obstetricians take care of women who are pregnant and support them through childbirth. Gynecology is the specialty that addresses medical problems arising from the reproductive organs in women. Problems like painful, irregular, or heavy periods, pain or problems with sex, problems getting pregnant, pelvic and vaginal pain, incontinence of urine, problems with puberty or menopause, abnormal PAP smears, and cancer of the ovaries, uterus, or cervix.

Most of my patients live in the small towns and rural areas of Centre and North Wellington County. I am based in Fergus and travel weekly to Palmerston. On the gynecology side I provide office and surgical general gynecology, vaginal surgery, laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, colposcopy, urogynecology, and infertility. Most patients are referred by family doctors for management of specific issues and I refer patients on to higher levels of care in Hamilton and London as necessary. On the obstetrics side I take referrals from family doctors and midwives while sharing on-call duties with family doctors doing obstetrics in Fergus.

I am one of two OB/GYN in this area so the 35 000 or so women living here see one of us or travel to larger centres.
