About me

Medical doctor, pediatrician, specialized in pediatric and adolescent gynecology, graduated from “Saint Joseph” University in Lebanon and “Paul Sabatier “University in France. I am dedicated to providing the best care to all my patients, to treat the common complaints of childhood and the rarest diseases. My approach is centered on the child and his family. One of my priorities is to help parents to understand and be involved in the care of their child and establishing a complementarity between our respective roles.

Pediatric/Adolescent Gynecology

Pediatric and adolescent gynecology is an emerging sub-specialty, at the intersection of pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology, gynecology, pediatric surgery, dermatology, psychiatry, public health medicine and genetics.

The gynecological problems encountered in children and adolescents are often both medically and psychologically complex and thus require a highly skilled and coherent approach. The adolescent, who is no longer a child but not quite an adult, poses a particular management problem to the traditional specialties.

I see patients from infancy to age 16 and I am specially trained to provide sensitive, age-appropriate examinations and treatment. I am experienced in addressing a wide variety of health-related concerns including acne, breast development, menstrual cycles, sexuality, contraception, genital and pubertal problems. I can deal with the treatment and prevention of gynecologic complications of chronic diseases like chronic renal failure, mucoviscidosis, cancer and chemotherapy and during organ transplant.

I understand the variations of normal prepubertal anatomy and physiology and I know how to communicate with a child and with her parents.

I ensure that examinations are done in way that is reassuring and without discomfort, using instruments and equipment especially designed to examine young children and teens.
