'We Get Out There and Do'Thousands of students, resident physicians and faculty members volunteer each year as part of the Rush Community Service Initiatives Programs, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year.
Physician, Reveal ThyselfRush has begun including patient survey results in individual physicians' online profiles. It's among few U.S. medical centers, and the only one in the Midwest, to make this information available to potential patients.
Below is a list of scientific publications for which this practitioner was either the primary author or a contributor. Citations come from PubMed, a database of biomedical literature, life science journals and online books. PubMed is a service of the US Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health.

I’ve been a reproductive endocrinologist for over 20 years at Rush, and a reproductive endocrinologist plays a slightly different role than a general gynecologist — in that we specialize in the complexity of hormones throughout a woman’s lifetime. Some hormonal patterns are normal, some are not. It’s my job to differentiate which of those abnormalities are treatable — whether it be with a non-hormonal method or a hormonal method — and try to balance those hormones as quickly as possible.
Research plays a vital role in my practice. I feel that it’s a bird’s-eye view into the future of women’s health, and it allows me to give many patients hope. I’m able to not only present to them much of what I already know through advanced learning, but also what the future holds for them.
