Why I Treat Children

Pediatrics is a unique and immensely rewarding field. This dynamic is highlighted when caring for children and their families, helping them navigate an often difficult and stressful hospital stay. Being able to make a difference in the trajectory of someone’s life is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a pediatrician. 

What I'm Passionate About

I’m passionate about developing and delivering consistently high quality care that is reproducible regardless of a patient’s background — care that’s impactful, timely and appropriate.  Additionally, I have interests in medical education and developing standards of practice in medical students and residents.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to make the work I do every day in the hospital to be an example for the medical students I work with, and for my colleagues. Additionally, I try to remain curious and interested in expanding my knowledge in my field.
