My goal is to provide the best possible care to all children. As a consultant to many other medical teams, I seek to provide information and recommendations regarding infectious disease issues so that the primary team can develop and implement the best diagnostic and management plans for their patients. As a physician working in the knowledge-based subspecialty of infectious diseases, I strive to maintain current knowledge across the discipline. As a member of a large group of exceptional infectious physicians, each of whom has particular areas of expertise, I regularly seek input from colleagues regarding patients with complex illnesses. Recognizing that for many patients the cause of symptoms or illness may not be immediately apparent, I work to develop efficient but thorough evaluations, to maintain an open mind, and to seek input from patients and parents as well as from medical colleagues.
