  • “I try to help parents be the best they can be so their children can be the happiest they can be.”

I've been a pediatrician here for 26 years. I raised my own children here, and I understand this community very well. I love watching my patients grow up and return with children of their own. As a pediatrician, I try to help parents be the best they can be so their children can be the happiest they can be.

Being a parent has made me a better pediatrician because I understand how challenging parenting can be. It has allowed me to see things through the eyes of a parent. I've been through it, and as a parent and a pediatrician, I'm here to assist you. Whether it's a medical, social or parenting question, my goal is to help families through the journey of raising children.

I believe you should do something you love every day; for me it's being a pediatrician. Loving what you do makes life so much more rewarding.
