About

Bio

I am a pediatrician in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I practice general pediatrics but have specials interests in developmental pediatrics and genetics. One of my favorite topics is helping parents with parenting issues and questions. I have been practicing for over 20 years. I am a parent myself and know how challenging it can be. Parenting is not for cowards!

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.
