  • “I believe that everybodys input is important. Its a privilege to be allowed into my patients lives to provide care and to help lay a foundation for healthy habits.”

Pediatrics is special because of the fun energy kids bring. I love being able to work with people and have an impact on their lives. In pediatrics, you get to follow children from birth to young adulthood and experience the changes and progression of their development. It's an important relationship where interventions at an early stage can help set them on the path for the best health possible. It's especially true for adolescents on the cusp of adulthood as it presents some unique challenges and opportunities to have important conversations that can help shape the rest of their lives.

My goal is to provide family-centered care when interacting with parents or caregivers. Communication, empathy and shared decision-making combined with evidence-based medical research and medical informatics are some of the tools I employ to best treat patients. I listen carefully and intently to parents' concerns because I believe that everybody's input is important. It's a privilege to be allowed into my patients' lives to provide care and to help lay a foundation for habits that set them on a path for a healthy, long life.
