Philosophy of Care
Pediatric medicine exemplifies the physician I aspire to be, blessing me with the opportunity to pursue my passion as a health provider, educator, and mentor for today’s youth. It allows me to work with patients and their families where I can help guide them through all stages of growing up, from the challenges of newly found parenthood to educating young individuals on how to take responsibility of their health as they transition to adulthood.
I am passionate about providing a medical home for all of my patients and parents so that they can feel truly comforted and supported by a physician who is willing to listen to all of their concerns and help address their needs. I strongly believe in practicing preventive medicine and promoting overall wellness through patient-centered health care and incorporating shared decision making.
I am forever grateful for the role models and mentors in my life who molded me into the person I am today, and I hope to have the same impact upon future generations as a dedicated and proud pediatrician.
