She attended the University of Texas, graduating magna cum laude with a B.S. degree in Molecular Biology. She received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1986 and served a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Parkland Memorial Hospital from 1986 to 1990.

After fellowship training, she was invited to join the medical school faculty at UCSF.

endometriosis care for fertility

Did you know that 50% of fertility challenges are linked to Endometriosis?

If you suspect that endometriosis might be contributing to your infertility, get 360-degree support that can help you manage symptoms and streamline your fertility journey, from start to finish. 

My approach to patient care is to work with the patient on decision-making in a collaborative way. My role is to provide information, data, facts and support the patient's decision. That might flow from absorbing those facts and helping them to decide what the best approach for them may be. It's not my approach to tell them what I think or what they should or shouldn't do.
