Meet Rupa D. Goolsby, M.D.
"Family and obstetrics are major themes in my life. My husband and I are both obstetricians and we have three young children, two daughters and a son. Empowering patients with information about their healthcare is one of my main goals as a physician. I love to use handouts, charts and diagrams to help patients understand the biological process. A good physician takes time to really listen to her patients and I believe that it is extremely important to develop a relationship with each patient that fosters communication and trust."
Taking New Patients: Yes
