About

Bio

I am a Board Certified Pediatrician who trained in Hawaii and obtained my fellowship in Adolescent Medicine at UCLA. I was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Nevada School of Medicine for 3 years and now I am in private practice in Las Vegas for the past 11 years.

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.

1 teaspoon or 5cc's: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be used with the Albuterol and Prednisone. The dosage of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for your child's weight would be about 1 teaspoon (5cc) being that the concentration of the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is 12.5mg per each teaspoon. Remember, if your child is having breathing problems, always consult with your Pediatrician. Take care.

See your doctor: Individuals who are hungry and thirsty may be displaying signs of diabetes. It is important to stay well hydrated during the summer and always to have a balanced nutritional diet. Staying active helps distract use from raiding the refrigerator at home. But it is best to check with your doctor to see if there is a medical cause for your symptoms. Take care.

See his Pediatrician: Infants can appear hungry after eating. It is important to check with your Pediatrician to see if your son is growing well and gaining weight appropriately. Depending of the type of feeding also has an impact (formula vs. breast feeding). Some babies appear to breast feed well but if their mother does not have an adequate amount of milk, they will be hungry. Best to check with his Pediatrician
