I believe the greatest work I can do in life is positively impact the life of a child. It is my honor and privilege to care for them daily, watch them grow and thrive, help alleviate their suffering, and support their families. Getting to know your child and their personality makes my day even more rewarding. I love seeing their smiles, hearing their laughs, and learning their strengths. I respect how these influential years of childhood set a lifelong pattern of health, and that during this precious time we can prevent disease and establish productive habits. I view you, parents and caregivers, as being the most important members my patient’s care team. I take your concerns and questions seriously and strive to work collaboratively with you in caring for your child. I am not afraid to say “I don’t know,” I promise to be open and honest, and I will work to find difficult answers or get you connected with the appropriate providers when needed.
