About

Bio

I am board-certified certified in pediatrics and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. I have been practicing general pediatrics for the last twenty years. I participate in the annual St. Baldrick's Shaving Event to raise money for childhood cancer research.

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.
