About

Bio

I am interested in community medicine and advocacy. I believe preventive care extends to a child's nutritional, physical, educational and emotional environment. I teach classes on asthma and pediatric obesity management in addition to my practice of general pediatric outpatient care.

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.
