    Biography

    What I enjoy most about pediatrics is interacting with children and families. A lot of pediatricians' time is spent on teaching, and I take this role seriously. I enjoy helping parents understand their child’s symptoms or illness and also making parents aware of the importance of things like immunizing and breastfeeding. I also aim to make the child and parent laugh or at least smile by the end of the visit.
