  • “I love working with children because they are so honest and optimistic.”

Im a pediatric hematologist and I help run the blood bank that serves both Stanford and Packard hospitals. My cross-training makes me an expert in a new field called pediatric transfusion medicine, and theres only a handful of people who do what I do across the country. There are a lot of unanswered questions in our field but each time a child gets a blood transfusion it helps us develop the safest and most effective ways to treat pediatric patients with blood.

I love working with children because they are so honest and optimistic. A patient once told me my outfit didnt match I looked down and saw that I had two different shoes on. No adult wouldve been that honest. I just love that about children their honesty and their positive outlook.

Im also a parent, and that informs the way I practice medicine. Im aware of how something simple, like an iron deficiency, changes a familys entire day. I want families to know that I understand the challenges of parenting, and that well work together as a team to make the best decisions for their childs care.
