Welcome to the inaugural episode of Confessions of a Male Gynecologist, a cheeky-sounding name for an unconventional show.
I’m Dr. Shawn Tassone, a board-certified OB-GYN who’s also board certified in integrative medicine. It’s an unusual combination, rooted in my recognition that I couldn’t help my patients as much as I wanted to through allopathic medicine alone.
How we respond to our health and how we respond to each other tells a story. I created this podcast not only to share the stories I’ve experienced and encountered over the past 20 years but to create a space for colleagues and patients to share their stories.
In this episode, I’m sharing what you can expect from Confessions of a Male Gynecologist, my background and what drove me to want to be a better healer, what I’ve learned from my patients, and how the conversations we’ll share on this podcast will empower you in your health journey.
I’m excited to welcome you on this journey. Now, let’s get to those confessions.
