About

Bio

I'm a board certified Pediatrician with 10 years of Pediatric ER experience. I founded Healthy Horizons Pediatrics, a solo private practice, in 2007 which I sold in 2012. I'm currently the Director of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center in Fredericksburg, VA.

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.
