About Me


I’m a pediatrician who practices general pediatrics and neonatology. One of my most important goals as a provider is to develop trust with patients and families. Whether it is in the outpatient clinic or inpatient intensive care unit, trust is essential to any meaningful patient-provider relationship.

Medicine lies at the intersection of compassion and curiosity. It allows me the opportunity to help a child and family in their darkest, most vulnerable times. It’s also an opportunity to identify unsolved challenges and propose and evaluate novel solutions. Then, we use these solutions to move our field forward.

When I’m not helping patients, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and learning about the world around us.
