Why I Treat Children

I believe children are precious, and are a very vulnerable population that needs to be protected. Caring for them is my way to add something positive to their lives.

What I'm Passionate About

I’m passionate about improving my patients’ quality of life. I work to accomplish this by helping to control their conditions and symptoms, and ensuring that their parents understand their medical situations, and are knowledgeable and feel comfortable in providing home care.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to make a difference by building a relationship with each patient and family. This is important so that they feel confident in the care I deliver and the recommendations I make — and so that we can work together as a team for their child's health.
