About

Bio

I am a practicing pediatrician in Maine. I have 10 years experience in pediatric critical care but decided to step back into primary care pediatrics in order to be able to spend more time with my teenaged son. I have lived and practiced all over the country as well as extended training in the UK.

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.

This made me feel good. Thanks! People always make me feel guilty for not letting my child watch tv all day or ipad away the day. This definitely confirmed my decision to keep at it
