Why I chose to practice in Grand Rapids...
I practice in Grand Rapids because it is a community that I can truly call HOME. I did grow up here as a child, but more importantly, I am able to raise my own family here and feel comfortable that I am offering them the best possible life from schools to the great communities around Grand Rapids to live in. Practicing in Grand Rapids also allows us to practice at world class medical institutions in obstetrics and gynecology. Michigan State offers one of the largest research departments in women's health in the United States and in each of the last two years, Spectrum Health has scored in the top 22 institutions for women's health in US News and World Reports.
