Fyodor Dostoyevsky has said, "The soul is healed by being with children".
I believe there is a lot of truth to that. It is the highlight of my day when I'm surrounded by fussy, cranky, adorable, happy, sick, smart, funny, honest children. No really! I actually mean it:)
They were my motivation to go into Peds.
I am a board certified Pediatrician. I take care of a vast variety of issues in children .. From all kinds of common and not so common illnesses to regular wellness checks, immunizations, nutritional, developmental and growth assessments to mental health concerns. I perform circumcisions in newborn baby boys. I also provide adolescent care. I see a wide range of ages in my practice .. From newborn babies to 18 year olds. Sometimes I also fulfill the role of a family counsellor to the best of my abilities.
