Philosophy of care
My first concern is to promote the well-being of children. I make every effort to provide the best medical care and personal attention for my patients. I enjoy partnering with parents in caring for their children
Why I entered medicine
I decided to become a doctor because I was fascinated by the study of medicine and because I wanted to help people (especially children and their parents) to be healthier and happier. More than 25 years later, I feel the same way.
I support The Children's Clinic and have been involved in numerous school and community programs regarding pediatric asthma and obesity. I was a founding member of the Reach Out and Read program at The Children's Clinic and continue to support that program.
I enjoy being outdoors - walking with my dog, hiking, and biking. I like gardening and cooking. I relax in the evening by reading whenever I have the time.
