  • “Being heard is part of the therapeutic relationship, I listen so parents and patients know that I understand and we can work together towards solutions.”

Pediatrics is the perfect combination of human interaction and science, it's in that sweet spot where you can help somebody by connecting with them emotionally, but there's also a scientific principle behind it. I love being in the room with the kid and the family, hearing what their needs are and being able to help. Everyone need to be incorporated in the decision making so they understand the recommendations and feel they are being treated with care and respect.

Being heard is part of the therapeutic relationship, I listen so parents and patients know that I understand and we can work together towards solutions. I enjoy helping parents deal with digestion issues or colicky babies. It's rewarding to work with a nervous parent and make them feel comfortable by helping them realize it's not that bad, that they're doing just fine. Part of my job is to be there to reassure families that kids are very resilient, even if there is an issue, kids usually get better.
