About

Bio

I have been a pediatrician at Richmond Pediatric Associates for 15 years. I have a great job and many awesome patients and their families. At home, I have 2 small children, and more hobbies than time to do them.

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.

Seek help now: Your symptom is concerning for an abscess of the tonsil. You should see a doctor as soon as possible. There are some other things it could be, but it needs to get checked out.

1-3 days: I normally want to see newborn babies within a couple of days after hospital discharge. If there is going to be an issue with jaundice, weight loss or poor feeding, that is when you can catch it and take care of it.

Not usually: Bedtime snacks have some pitfalls: risk of dental cavities, poor daytime eating habits, or even obesity. Encourage healthy eating at meals by limiting snacks and liquid calories during the day. Make mealtime social and enjoyable while modeling good eating habits. And if you do give in, make sure to brush teeth before sleep!.
