Philosophy of Care

When patients come to Boston Children’s Hospital, they are seeking our help, often at a frightening or vulnerable time in their lives. Being evaluated for a heart condition, even if you ultimately come up with a clean bill of health, can be an incredibly stressful experience.  My hope for all my patients is that they feel comforted and supported when they come to see me - that they feel we are partners in this together, walking side-by-side, step-by-step through the highs and lows that inevitably come with any medical issue.
