  • “My work has given me a greater appreciation for life.”

I love working with kids because they are playful and fun to be around. I don't think people realize how perceptive children are! They're incredibly wise. I am always honest with my patients and their families, and I try to appease their worries when I can. I try to be both realistic and hopeful. That's how I approach every patient, no matter what the situation is.

The doctorpatient relationship is unique. I build long-lasting relationships on a foundation of trust. I'm honored that my patients and families trust me. I love watching children grow up. It's a unique opportunity to be part of someone's life through both the good and bad times. After a while, you become part of someone's family — I even get to watch Disney movies with my patients! The biggest compliment for me is when parents tell me that I'm their kid's favorite doctor and that their child loves coming to see me. That feels so nice to hear.
