Care Philosophy

I care about kids. I want them to do well and grow up and be productive adults. But I think I've also made a point in my career to treate everyone equally, regardless of social status or background. My other hope in my practice is to encourage preventive care among children so they don't get involved in risky behavior, so they don't smoke and take care of themselves.
