Commitment Statement

“I think there were two reasons I went into medicine. I think there is a responsibility to care for people. I've also enjoyed mental stimulation and problem solving.”

“Maternal-fetal medicine allows you to do internal medicine and has some surgical applications, so you get to do a little of both, which I think is enjoyable. I didn't want to be an internist only or a general surgeon only.”

“I most enjoy the interaction with the patients. I think part of the profession is to put their mind at ease as best you can, and to explain as best you can about how things can go forward.”

“If you look at a lot of cases, the health of mothers is getting somewhat worse. Hypertension, diabetes, tobacco use and obesity not only increase maternal complications, but also fetal complications.”

“Where the push really needs to be is early education, with a focus on identification and understanding of pre-diabetes to help with prevention.”
