Philosophy of Care

As a pediatrician I strive to build strong and lasting relationships with children and their families from birth to eighteen. I believe that pediatric health care is comprised of physical, developmental and emotional wellness and I will work to ensure a multi-modal approach to caring for your child. I work to provide timely, accurate pediatric health information to families both in and out of the exam room. For this reason, I am actively engaged in using media as an education tool and have created Kids Considered, a childrens health podcast, for parents to have immediate access to timely pediatric health topics.
