About

Bio

My goal is to work with the parents of my patients as a team to provide for the health and well being-both physically, mentally and developmentally, of their children. I do support and believe in the value of immunizations for children. I prefer to use antibiotics only when medically necessary. I am proactive in treating and controlling asthma, even intermittent viral induced asthma when necessary. I would like to help parents develop healthy eating and physical activity habits while their children are young in order to avoid overweight and poor physical fitness in their lives. I am proactive in seeking intervention with developmental delays and barriers to learning in school and at home. I love taking care of children-it is a blessing and an honor.
