When I was a child, I wanted to grow up to be either a teacher, a doctor or a mother. I grew up and got to be all three.
I have always been fascinated with the human body. In neurology, you're looking at a very elaborate system. The brain is an organ that connects to every part of your body; when I treat patients, I look at each component of their physical system.
Because my patients are children, I treat the whole family. It is an honor to have parents entrust me with the most precious thing in their lives — their children. The true art of medicine is how you tailor your approach to each family and child.
I love my job because I have the privilege of getting to know patients and families and affecting their lives in a positive way. Each family has a personal story; being able to have a part in their story is incredibly rewarding.
