About

Bio

I am a general pediatrician currently being trained to specialize in pediatric hematology/oncology. I was trained as a chemical engineer at Cornell University, but I wanted to help others more directly, so I returned to medical school. I graduated as an MD from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA in 2011. I trained as a pediatric resident at A. I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE. I am currently training as a pediatric hematology/oncology fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. I am glad to help with any general pediatric questions you may have. Since my office is not a general pediatric office, I may refer you to your pediatrician or a trusted local pediatrician if your child needs to be evaluated in person. In addition, if I deem that your child needs emergent attention, I will refer you to an Emergency Room nearby, preferably a pediatric ER. As a parent myself, I understand the joys as well as the fears that come with parenting. I would love to be able to assuage your fears and take appropriate care for your child in a more convenient manner for you.
