I believe in providing each patient with the best possible diagnosis and treatment options based on a scientific approach to their problem. I aim to provide families with the knowledge and understanding they need to make the best decision for their child's care. I am especially passionate about finding creative, "out-of-the-box" solutions for patients with rare disorders or challenging problems.
