Riverside Women's Care
Riverside Women’s Care is a comprehensive OB/GYN practice including full-service obstetrics dedicated to caring for women throughout their lives from their childbearing years to postmenopause.
What was your most defeating medical moment and how did you learn from it? I think every doctor has times when they have unforeseen or unexpected outcomes. Obstetrics has the ability to hurt us in that way. Sometimes despite doing everything right, Mother Nature has other plans. I think this gives us a sense that we are merely tools and not truly the deciding factor in what ultimately happens.
What have you learned from your patients that you never could have learned from any class or operating room? Have an open mind. Everyone can use another friend. People deserve to be heard, whether you agree with them or not. Just because you don’t agree with someone doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to think they are correct. Respect everyone. Give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
What sets you apart from the other practices in the Lowcountry? Riverside Women’s Care is unique in that we have 24 hour in-house doctor on call 365 days a year. We actually stay in the building, on labor and delivery, the entire time we are on call. When you go to the Women’s Pavilion at Coastal Carolina Hospital in the middle of the night, you will be seen immediately by one of our in-house Riverside physicians. It’s not often that we have to make immediate surgical or obstetrical decisions, but when we do, I feel much better knowing I’m down the hall from an operating room, rather than down the street or across town from it.
What is your favorite thing to do on your days off? I love building furniture, doing home repair projects and rebuilding old cars. I’m currently working on a large rustic farm table for 10, based on a picture I saw in a Pottery Barn catalog.
