About

Bio

I am a board-certified pediatrician and allergist/immunologist specializing in both adult and pediatric allergic conditions such as rhinitis, sinusitis, food allergy, drug allergy, Hymenoptera sensitivity, chronic urticaria, and mastocytosis. I am a clinical educator and dedicated to medical education. I am interested in ethical issues that arise in the everyday allergy practice, especially costs of care. Lastly, I am a mother to 3 children, one with food allergy.

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.
