Philosophy of Care
Hands down, the best part of being a pediatrician is having the opportunity to know and care for a child from the day of their birth through their passage into adulthood. I love my job, and enjoy spending my days with children and their families. As a parent, I know how important it is to have both the encouraging support and objective expertise of a physician you can trust as your child grows.
My goal is to be your trusted partner in protecting your child's health, and a helpful resource during those rocky periods of illness and concern that pop up in every childhood. To help parents make the most informed decisions, I provide medical advice deeply rooted in the most up-to-date research and a wealth of professional and personal experience. To help children enjoy and take gradual control of their own healthcare, I work on engaging them from the very beginning: chatting with newborns, playing with toddlers, and respectfully including older children in the medical decision-making process.
To keep the lines of communication open, I use email and the PAMF website to ensure that a treatment plan is clear and working as expected. With this approach, I hope to provide a trusted, convenient and comfortable medical home for every child and family in my practice.
