Philosophy of Care

I pursued pediatrics not only because of my love of working with children but also because of my ability to positively influence children’s lives from a very young age in this position. I strive to build trusting relationships with my patients as well as their parents and to support children in improving their level of health by providing compassionate, culturally-competent, and patient-centered care.
