About

Bio

I am a board-certified pediatrician with over 10 years of experience. I pride myself on being a thorough, conscientious and compassionate physician. I am passionate about disease prevention and patient/parent education.

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.

Neonatal herpes : Neonatal herpes from maternal transmission can be a very severe and potentially life threatening infection. Localized rash/blisters around the eye/mouth is an early sign. The rash can spread and the virus can disseminate to brain (encephalitis) and other organs. By now, the baby is very ill. The type of seizures can vary. Regardless, if u r concerned about seizure, see pediatrician immediately.

Lice: Decreasing the temperature in your home will not kill the lice. This requires treating the individual/individuals in the home with either an over-the-counter shampoo or more effectively with a prescription medication. You will need to launder all bedding/recent clothing in hot water. Discard brushes and hats and place unwashables in plastic bag for approximately 1-2 wks.

Hymen: The hymen cannot grow back. The absence of a hymen does not necessarily indicate past sexual activity because it can be broken by nonsexual activity/trauma.
