As a general pediatrician, I believe in treating the whole family, not just the patient. This approach means addressing concerns from the patient as well as parents and other caregivers during their visits. We also help with any barriers to care, including environmental, social, financial, transportation and others.
My mother is a pediatrician and my father is a radiologist, so I grew up around medicine. Seeing my mother work as a pediatrician piqued my interest in this field. In my practice, we provide a warm, welcoming environment. Our well-trained pediatricians are dedicated to caring for all children and their families.
I was honored to receive the Raymond Baker Teaching Award for Excellence in Primary Care Education, in 2019. This award is given yearly by the Cincinnati Pediatric Society to recognize outstanding physician educator in primary care.
I spend much of my free time hiking, walking or at the park with my five rescue dogs. I also like to spend time with friends and family.
