“I make sure children feel comfortable.”

My Approach

I'm a pediatrician because I love working with children and families. I approach my patients from a holistic standpoint, and try to see the big picture. I feel that it's important to engage the entire family and put them at ease. Coming to a doctor can be a stressful situation, so before we delve into the medical issues I make sure they feel comfortable. I have children myself so I can relate to both parents and children on a human level.

This hospital is such an inspiring place because everyone here is committed to working together. We all share a vision of providing the best care for children. It's really refreshing to know we are all working for that common good.
