I treat every child as if they were my own. Each child deserves the very best care; I make sure the care I provide is both empathic and evidence-based. Parents and family members look to me to provide the most current medical advice.
I have many years of cumulative experience and training in molecular biology, brain research and pediatric intensive care. I use this experience to help me provide the most cutting-edge care possible, and explain the scientific basis of care to parents in a way that is easy to understand. I also follow the American Academy Pediatrics recommendation to screen children for autism before age 2, because the earliest treatment has proven to have the best results. Fascinating advances in the neurosciences make it possible for me to achieve the very best outcomes for children born with functional birth defects of the brain.
One of the greatest moments was the day one of my patients who had a prosthetic leg, resulting from multiple birth defects, brought his soccer ball to my office to show me that he had learned to kick well. It's moments like these that make my career so rewarding.
