About

Bio

It is important that all patients are treated equally and with respect. I also believe that in order to protect the future of our health all patients should be educated on the importance of reducing antibiotic resistance. Other areas of interest include proper manageement of eczema in children of all ages, infant and child scalp care, newborn care, obesity treatment and prevention, and management of asthma and allergies. Most importantly

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.
