“If you need extra attention and time, I will never bat an eyelash and will always give you the support you need.”
I was born in India but grew up in Uganda, where I saw many children who were ill. I used to volunteer in the hospital and clinics there, and that experience inspired me to become a pediatrician. That is where I learned that small interventions at the right time can make a big impact in a child's life.
In my practice, I work together with parents as a team. I make sure that my focus is always on the whole family. Kids can't be responsible for their own care, so it's important that the adults are all on the same page and that they are clear on what needs to be done.
My promise to families is that I will spend as much time as possible listening to their questions and concerns. If you need extra attention and time, I will never bat an eyelash and will always give you the support you need.
