About

Bio

I have been practicing as a pediatrician for about 10 years now. I have a special interest in asthma, allergies, and complementary medicine. I am very much an out of the box thinker so I often come up unique ideas and solutions. So if you think you have tried everything and nothing work come see me, I am sure I can come with a few more thing for you to try.

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.
