Dr. Kramer OBGyn Interview – Questions & Answers

Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient as an OBGyn?

When a women returns after her outpatient urethral sling procedure to relieve urinary leakage or endometrial ablation for heavy periods and she smiles & exclaims… No more pads! I then know I have restored her freedom and more importantly her dignity.

What makes being an OBGyn the right specialty of medicine for you?

More than any other quality women deserve compassionate care givers. That is my gift. I often hear women confide in me that they believed that a woman doctor would be more caring & gentle; after all they’re women and should be able to relate firsthand to their patient’s concerns. Only to be disappointed in their physician. Compassion is not determined by a person’s gender, it’s being able to listen and empathize with another person’s suffering.

What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?

Endometrial Ablation. Too many women tolerate heavy periods for too long. They’re often afraid of the usual “knee-jerk” response of most gynecologists to use hormones or undergo a hysterectomy. Most of my patients who choose this 90 second solution to their problem periods have their endometrial ablation performed in the convenience of our office; avoiding the anxiety of the operating room and undesirable side-effects of general anesthesia. They return to regular activities the next day. Best of all, over 90% are satisfied with their results of significantly lighter periods, and over half never bleed again. As one woman said to me, “Doc if you can fix my period with a simple office visit, then let’s do it”

What procedure would you like to do more of and why?

Urethral Sling. Over the past 15 years this 10 minute, outpatient procedure has evolved as the “gold standard” for helping women not only regain bladder control, but more importantly their dignity.  After just a few days most women enjoy the freedom to return to their daily activities no longer wearing pads.

What is your favorite quote or saying?

Women will take care of everyone else but themselves, often letting intolerable conditions advance, impacting the quality of their lives. My favorite quote I share almost daily, “If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to take care of those you care about most.”
