I am a father of three wonderful children, Demetra, Sophia, and Janse (all poised to be physicians) and the husband of a great wife, Theodora, to whom I have been married for 28 years.  As a retired Navy Commander, I have witnessed the delivery of health care in many different settings and I have participated in women’s health care now in Burlington, NC since 2001.  I enjoy the diversity of my profession from caring for young healthy pregnant women, to menopausal females, to complicated patients with life threatening diseases.  As a Board Certified Ob/Gyn, my training has been broad and thorough which has allowed me to offer a variety of treatment plans including minimally invasive surgeries for heavy menstruation, to corrective procedures for prolapse and surgery to repair urinary leakage.  I have a passion for exercise and staying fit and I try to help my patients to do the same.  I would be honored if you chose me to be your doctor.
