I've been a pediatrician for over 30 years and I love what I do. I enjoy helping children successfully move through each of life's stages and look forward to the time and conversations spent with them. Yes, even the teenagers. One of the things that come from many years of experience in pediatrics is a new appreciation for the adolescent years. I'm a good listener and have both knowledge and insight to offer—and my teenage patients recognize that I'm committed to helping them succeed.
An important part of my role is educating and reassuring parents. As a parent myself, I understand their concerns and worries. Parent education is particularly important with asthma and allergies, an area I have additional training and a strong interest in. Helping children and parents successfully navigate allergies and asthma is an important and rewarding part of my practice.
