Philosophy of Care

I believe that my role as a primary care pediatrician is to guide my patients and their parents through illness as well as the behavioral and developmental ups and downs of childhood. By engaging in shared decision-making and teaching families how to recognize and treat common problems, I hope to empower them to take great care of their kids and feel confident while they do it.
