About

Bio

I am board certified in General Pediatrics and Canadian Board Certified in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. I graduated from Mcgill Medical School, where I also completed my residency. I completed my fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada.

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.
