About

Bio

I am a board certified Pediatrician. I have a masters in Public Health. I spent 11 years practicing outpatient medicine and now have spent almost three being a hospitalist. I love treating children and listening to their thoughts and ideas. I view medicine as a partnership between my patients and me. I want my patients and families to have the best quality of life. I always want people to feel comfortable with the care of their children. I want every child to have access to the best possible care. I volunteer with the American Academy of Pediatrics and with a local reduced cost clinic to improve care and living conditions for our country's most vulnerable population. I have two children of my own and they teach me things about children, parenting and life everyday.

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.
