I am passionate about: caring for my patients and their families. I believe that all children should have access to high quality health care, regardless of their background and family circumstances. I believe that pediatric care should be delivered in a thoughtful and practical manner within the context of the family. I strive to help my patients reach and maintain their optimal level of health in order to meet the goals and needs of their life.
If I wasn't a provider, I would be a: teacher. I love to help children learn and watch their light bulbs go off as they understand and master a new concept.
Something I have learned from my patients is: that one never knows exactly what brought a patient or family to the office that day. It is important to take the time to listen and figure out what that is and help them with that need.
One of the challenges of pediatrics that I enjoy is: that you are not only treating the patient, you are treating the entire family. It is important to take the time to get to know what each patient identifies as their family and the environment in which they live and interact.
