I have been with Northwest Women’s Health Care since 2005 and realize that this great group of providers shares my vision in the care of women. The staff at this facility is surpassed by none and I am proud to be a part of this exceptional team. I had practiced gynecology in Pennsylvania for the past 21 years. During this time my practice evolved into general women’s health care as well as laparoscopic surgery. I also have a passion for pelvic reconstructive surgery (repair of prolapse) and bladder repair for urinary loss. When I explored working at Northwest Women’s Health Care, I found the “team approach” to be exactly the opportunity for which I was searching. This approach will give me the opportunity
to continue to practice gynecology, see patients and last, but not least, continue to lecture, write and teach, both nationally as well as internationally, new surgical techniques for female surgery.
Now that I have told you of my professional passions and visions, I will give you a short background on my academic past. I graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Chemistry in 1971 and then went on to study medicine both in Switzerland as well as Temple University School of Medicine, receiving my MD degree in 1980. From 1980-1984 I specialized in obstetrics and gynecology, completing a residency in Pennsylvania. I then went into private practice. While in private practice, I was a clinical assistant professor in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Taylor and I have authored chapters in international textbook on surgical anatomy and dissection techniques.
On a personal level, I was born in Baltimore, Maryland. I met my beautiful wife, Shirley, at the shore in Ocean City, Maryland where I worked as a lifeguard and she as a waitress. We married in 1975 and have seven wonderful children. Our youngest son is a student at the Air Force Academy. We are lucky to have two of our children living here in the valley with their families and are always excited when the rest of the gang, who are scattered all over the United States, can come to visit with their families. We have been blessed with many grandchildren, 14, and still counting! Since moving here in 2005, we have enjoyed the activities the Flathead Valley offers. During the summers, we enjoy hiking and exploring the beautiful sites of Glacier National Park, canoeing on the lake near our home, taking the grand kids to the movies, thrilling them with the alpine slide on Big Mountain and treating them to frozen yogurt at the Red Caboose in Whitefish. In winter, we enjoy snowshoeing.
