The Pinnacle Family Medicine Obstetrics group has a wide breadth of experience, with individuals having years to decades of experience in the field.
Delivering babies continues to be a very rewarding part of my career.
I have been delivering babies for over 35 years. It is an integral part of my practice. I have shared my passion and skills with over 150 family medicine residents. My OB clinic was recently awarded the prestigious Bright Lights Award for outstanding interprofessional care.
I grew up in Waterloo region, completing all my medical training in this community. During my residency through the KW satellite of McMaster University, I realized how wonderful it was to be involved in this very special moment in the lives of my patients. It has been fantastic being part of this team; now colleagues with some of my former teachers.
I grew up in North York, later studying biology and psychology at the University of Toronto. I completed my medical degree at McMaster University then residency in Kitchener through McMaster. I enjoy seeing patients of all ages. Beyond my typical office practice, I also provide care in a retirement home.
I grew up in Waterloo, going on to study biochemistry at UW. I attended medical school at the University of Toronto and studied family medicine at Queen's University. I returned to KW in 2011, taking over the practice of my former family doctor - the same man who delivered me many years previous.
Originally born and raised in the USA, I moved to Waterloo region in 1997. I attended medical school at Ross University and completed my clinical training in Chicago. I graduated from family medicine in 2013. I completed additional obstetrical training in 2014 after working in Stratford, Ontario.
HISTORY & MISSION
The members of Pinnacle Family Medicine Obstetrics have been collaborating since 2010 to provide family centered pregnancy care in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Its members are all family physicians, some with over 40 years of experience.
Pinnacle believes in a team-based approach to office and hospital care. Through strong communication, we are able to provide around-the-clock care to our patients. Our rotating on-call schedule covers evenings and weekends. We also share our passion for pregnancy care with medical students and residents as we strive to train the next generation of family medicine obstetrical providers.
We are open to referrals for any patients intending to deliver at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario. We are happy to accept unattached patients from the community. We are generally not able to absorb such patients into our respective practices, but will make efforts to link patients to family physicians in Waterloo region.
Obstetrical services for Kitchener and Waterloo are exclusively based at Grand River Hospital.
In the event of complications, pediatricians and obstetricians are both available in-house. Grand River Hospital has a level 2+ neonatal ICU.
