About

Bio

I'm a board certified pediatrician and I've been with ABC Pediatrics since 1996. I enjoy working with new parents and children of all ages, including teens. Since my daughter was adopted from China, I have a special interest in caring for internationally adopted children. Out of the office, I'm a fan of many sports, especially the San Francisco Giants. I'm hoping that my daughter will be a baseball fan, but my husband is trying to raise a comic-book and tech geek. So far, he's winning.

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.
