About

Bio

I am double board certified in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine and enjoy caring for many multi-generational families. I also teach medical students and residents and enjoy staying current with emerging medical information.

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.
