I believe that the practice of medicine requires developing a foundation of trust with children and their families. The most rewarding aspect of medicine is being entrusted with the care of a child.

Clinical Interests:

My clinical interests include general pulmonary and sleep medicine conditions. Specific interests include asthma, cystic fibrosis, sleep apnea, and hypersomnia.

Research Interests:

My research interests include the impact of inhaled corticosteroids on growth and adrenal function, and the potential relationship of obstructive sleep apnea and pulmonary hypertension.
