About

Bio

After 27 years in primary care private practice, I joined the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Louisville School of Medicine where I am currently the director of the newborn nursery at U of Louisville Hospital. I have a special interest in toddler behavior, and I offer parenting workshops on dealing with the issues involved in caring for toddlers.

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.

Very unlikely: Rabies is usually passed through the saliva of an infected animal. so a paw scratch is less worrisome, and without a break in the skin, very unlikely.
