    Philosophy of Care

    I love taking care of children and their families and am honored to be a part of my patients' lives. Kids are fun, energetic, resilient and generally healthy! A big part of my job is taking care of healthy kids. Preventive medicine is the cornerstone of pediatrics and vaccinations are a key element of preventive medicine. Together with good nutrition, active lifestyles and a happy stable environment, they can help ensure a lifetime of good health for our children. I also value my role in guiding patients and families through illness. I always try to stay up to date with latest evidence-based medicine to provide high quality diagnostic and therapeutic care for my patients. It's my pleasure to help parents wade through what can be complicated medical facts and recommendations to make the right decision for their child. As a department, we also follow our patients in the hospital and I will also make sure there is good coordination of care with specialists when needed. My goal is to work with parents as part of the healthcare team in providing individualized, high quality, compassionate, kid-friendly care!
