If you listen to the patient, they will tell you what’s wrong with them. The famous physician, William Osler, coined this idea in the late nineteenth century, but it has never been more relevant than it is today.
Listening takes time, and I consider it the cornerstone of my practice. Starting my practice twenty-three years ago, I had a vision of healthcare where doctors made the time to truly listen to patients. I wanted to create a space where gynecologists did not limit their concerns to just a patient’s reproductive system, and where care incorporated a more holistic approach of evidence-based medicine with an openness to natural and alternative treatment options. Most of all, I wanted personalized care in an environment that addressed the whole woman: mind, body and spirit. With that as the guiding principle, I created All Woman Women’s Healthcare in July 2000. To expand this idea, I was the first, and now, one of the few gynecologists in Northern Kentucky to earn certification as a Certified Menopause Practitioner by the North American Menopause Society.
Now, many years later, I am able to finally bring my vision into existence through my partnership with MDVIP. This affiliation allows me to provide not only gynecologic care, but to focus on primary care for women as well, offering an opportunity to offer a more comprehensive women’s healthcare experience. The MDVIP Women’s Health program is a fresher approach, where the essential elements of a stronger doctor-patient relationship and time to more closely listen are honored, valued and encouraged. In this structure, we can continue to help treat disease, and in addition, we can implement a wellness plan that can help you live healthier longer.
My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. I am one of the first gynecologists to provide these services in the Northern Kentucky area. With my passion for women’s health and this innovate practice style, I hope you will join me to create healthcare that is more uniquely tailored and personalized to you.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
