“Every encounter with a child and their family is special.”

My Approach

I chose to be an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor because I like helping people with such essential senses and aspects of life — hearing, breathing, and smelling. I believe the care of a child should always be in context of his or her family and culture, and I strive to create strong connections and lasting relationships with all my patients and families. Every encounter with a child and their family is special.

One of my most memorable moments was when I cared for a child who needed a tracheostomy to breathe. He was scared of doctors, and at first would cry every time he saw me. After several procedures, we were able to remove his tracheostomy and have him breathe on his own. At one of his last checkups, he saw me from down the hall and did a running leap to hug me with a big smile on his face. It makes me proud any time a child has a good medical experience.
