What kind of questions can I get addressed?
You can get answers to questions related to any general Ob/Gyn or women’s health topic or concern.
What topics are off limits?
If it’s not related to an women’s health issue, my expertise is limited. So, if you have a question about, say, a rash, an herbal supplement, a sports injury, or your toenail, I’m not your person. I know what I know and I know what I don’t know and will immediately let you know if your concern falls outside my area of training.
