  • “Taking care of children is a wonderful and profound responsibility.”

I see myself as a partner with parents. I'm here to help them raise their children to be the best that they can be. Involving parents in the decision-making process is crucial. I want families to come away from a visit feeling that their questions have been answered and confident in the care plan we've created.

It's a joy to relate to children at various life stages, from curious, rambunctious babies and toddlers to smart and savvy teenagers. I speak to them at their level, allowing them to trust me, which is crucial for a successful doctor-patient relationship.

Taking care of children is a wonderful and profound responsibility. Children of all ages, but especially the littlest ones, don't always have a voice. It is my responsibility to advocate for them, whether it is caring for them when they are sick or making sure they develop in the right way. I have three children of my own, and they are infinitely precious to me, as yours are to you. As parents, you must entrust your child's health to your pediatrician. I understand that, and I work hard to provide my patients with the highest level of care and attention. They deserve no less.
