About Me

Biography

I am an internal medicine physician who specializes in food allergy and allergic rhinitis. I very much enjoy working with children and their families.

Medicine has been a lifelong interest for me. I was first exposed to the field of allergy and immunology during my internal medicine training, where I saw firsthand the impact that a diagnosis of allergy can have on children and their families. I also saw how working with the physician can alleviate some concerns, clear up misconceptions and offer treatment plans.

I believe that the patient-physician relationship is very important. Empowering the patient and family to take control of their diagnosis, speak up and ask questions is essential. The best patient care is established through an effort of both the patients, their families and the physician.
