“I am fortunate to have found a profession that is not only challenging and constantly evolving, but one that allows me to develop rich relationships over time with patients and families. Best of all, no matter how busy or difficult my day might be, my patients find a way to entertain me with moments of humor. Practicing pediatrics is a pleasure on many levels.”
