  • “My goal is to educate patients and families about their condition and partner with them to optimize their treatment and quality of life.”

I became a pediatric endocrinologist because I enjoy working with children and have a passion for the medical sciences, particularly when it comes to treating conditions related to the hormonal pathways. I have a close family member with type 1 diabetes, so I am intimately familiar with how it affects one's life and I am aware of the approaches we can take to build diabetes care into our daily routines.

I enjoy being able to help families and patients manage diabetes and other chronic conditions throughout their life. Beyond the different forms of diabetes, my practice also focuses on disorders of the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, pubertal pathways and growth. Additionally, I specialize in helping adolescent and young adult patients with diabetes learn self-management as they transition from pediatric to adult care. My goal is to educate patients and families about their condition and partner with them to optimize their treatment and quality of life. Having personally faced the challenges of managing a chronic medical condition, I have a lot of empathy for what families in similar situations experience. Thus, I always make myself available for their questions, thoughts and concerns.
