About

Bio

I have been in Pediatric practice for 19 years, first in the New England area, and now in Southeast Georgia. I am also involved in international medical mission work in Haiti. I love my patients, and love being there to help parents take care of and really enjoy their children. My own children are the most wonderful blessings I have been given. I believe that parents need support, self confidence and good information and that, if they trust their instincts and have good doctors to turn to, all will be well!

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
