About

Bio

I first became interested in Infectious Diseases when Iearned of the HIV epidemic in college. My interest became solidified as a medical student doing medical service trips in Nicaragua. Working with children is incredibly gratifying to me. I have children of my own, and keeping children healthy is a gift.

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.
