About

Bio

I am originally from the Washington DC area and moved to Seattle in 2012. I have a wife and a daughter. I have practiced pediatric gastroenterology since 2006. My clinical interests include inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, feeding and growth problems in children, tube feedings, and food allergies. My outside interests include cooking, guitar playing, concert going, and being outdoors.

I am really excited to use mobile applications to help parents and children get well and maintain well being.
