Philosophy of Care
When you bring your child to the pediatrician, you place an extraordinary amount of trust in the pediatrician's ability to promote your child's well-being and protect against illness. For me, it is a tremendous honor to participate in your child's life in this way. I strive to address all of your concerns in a way that makes sense to you; to work together with you to prepare for the next steps in your child's development and health; to ensure that coming to the doctor is a positive experience for your child; and to cheer you on and let you know you are not alone if you sometimes wonder whether anyone else ever feels like parenting is even harder than expected!
