Why I Treat Children

Kids are fun to be around and are generally motivated to get better so they can get back to what matters most in their lives — play. They are generally straightforward compared to adults and heal quickly.

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about helping kids and parents feel at ease. I strive to listen and communicate well so I can figure out what is really concerning the patient and family the most so I can address those concerns directly.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to stay on time, make sure I’m well prepared and address all concerns.
