  • “If I'm able to help a child with their breathing, the rest of the body benefits.”

When I was little, doctors were very respected in our community. I wanted to wear a white coat and a stethoscope just like them. Then I realized it's not just about wearing a white coat but about helping people.

Becoming a doctor is the best decision of my life, because I love what I'm doing. Breathing plays such an important role in overall health. When a child has trouble breathing it impacts other aspects of their life. If I'm able to help a child with their breathing, the rest of the body benefits.

I know that families often wait a long time to see a specialist. I make sure they have enough time to share their concerns and then we form a plan together.

I want parents to know that I treat each child as if they were my own. I have my own children, so I understand what parents go through. I want families to know they can call me anytime for any reason. They are a part of my family.
