  • “It is my goal to help parents navigate through all the joys and growing pains of childhood development.”

Pediatrics is a natural fit for me. I grew up watching how my much fulfillment my parents derived from their jobsmy mother is a teacher and my father is a cardiologist. Pediatrics is the best of those worlds. A large part of my job is preventive care. Preventing illness and disease by educating families and fostering healthy lifestyle habits.

It's a tremendous privilege to be able to care for children of all ages and to create lifelong relationships with families. It's wonderful to see my patients grow up in front of me to become resilient and capable young adults.

Parenting is very challenging. Parents are under enormous pressure to do everything well and many parents do not have extended family nearby to provide support. It is my goal to help parents navigate through all the joys and growing pains of childhood development.

I believe there is more than one way to raise a healthy child. I like to guide parents to find practical solutions to behavioral issues; solutions that make sense for their children and their family. I enjoy engaging kids in discussions about their health in language they understand so they can become their own advocates.
