I initially chose to pursue a career in medicine because of the intellectual challenge it posed, but I later realized that relationships formed through clinical experiences are the most rewarding part of being a physician. I strive to foster open and constructive communication with my patients, to provide individualized care and guidance, and to do this cheerfully, with the goal of helping a child become the healthiest and happiest version of him/herself. I am fortunate to work in pediatrics, and I take the responsibility of caring for your child seriously.
