My philosophy of care is to provide the best medical care available while maintaining good quality of life for patients and their families. I believe this can be achieved through good communication with the team taking care of the patient, the family of the patient, and the patient themselves. 

Clinical Interests:

My clinical interest is to provide medical and psychosocial care for children with special needs.

Research Interests:

My research interests lies in the education of medical students, residents, and fellows in the context of children with complex medical problems. As medicine gets further advanced and we have patients in need of medical technology, it is in the best interest for a learner to have had some knowledge of the complex child.
