Care Philosophy

My favorite part about being a pediatrician is the long-term relationships I form with children and their families.  I am a strong believer that healthy habits begin in childhood and are key to lifelong health.  Healthy eating is one of the most important habits to start early.  When children have health problems, I consider how these affect their whole body as one integrated system.
