OBGYN in Hattiesburg, MS

I feel privileged to practice obstetrics and gynecology because of the uniqueness of the specialty. Not only do I have the opportunity to build a long term relationship through a patient’s pregnancy and childbirth, but I also have the chance to extend that relationship into assisting patients through other individualized situations, such as midlife health issues, pelvic and reconstructive surgeries, and the challenges of female cancers. No other specialty in medicine provides this type of patient/doctor relationship.
