Philosophy of Care

Many things have changed in Pediatrics over the past quarter of a century. It has been fascinating to see these changes unfold. I am amazed every day by the simple truth that children become adults. A particular interest of mine is helping families with complex medical and educational challenges. Ultimately, my work is to help all children become physically and emotionally healthy adults.
