About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

My father said that I started telling everyone I was going to be a pediatrician when I was four years old.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

The kids are so resilient. Adults don't bounce back the same way. There's a satisfaction with working with children that's probably only equaled to Obstetricians and those that deliver them.

How do you connect with your patients?

I try to be honest and pleasant. Children can spot phonies.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

I love to read. I have a subscription to TIME and I read a lot of fiction.

What is your advice for your patients?

RELAX! Parents tend to worry about little things and miss the enjoyment of their children.
