Get to Know Me

My brother had terrible eczema as a child, to the point where we would ask him if he wanted to wear shorts in the summer, and he would say “No, thanks.”' I promised myself that I would one day help kids like him. I am proud to have achieved double board certification in pediatrics and dermatology.

Why I Treat Children

I feel like a detective when I see a child with a new skin problem; I like to work with families to solve the mystery and figure out how to make my patient feel better.
