Philosophy of Care

I always wanted to utilize my love for technology and gadgets into helping improve the lives of young children and their families. I believe that there is a lot we can do to incorporate advances in technology to the medical field. My job at Boston Children’s Hospital gives me a unique opportunity to apply these technological advances to my clinical work. I want to build a future where diagnosis of diseases in children is made faster, more accurate and minimally invasive treatments are developed at a rapid pace.
