It is my honor and privilege to practice medicine. I am passionate about the field of Pediatric Neurology not only due to its broad range of intriguing diagnoses, treatments, research opportunities, and emerging therapies, but even more fulfilling is the opportunity to develop longitudinal relationships with patients and families. Families of children with neurodevelopmental conditions, especially epilepsy and neuromuscular conditions, experience unique challenges. I strive to provide compassionate, individualized care by working with patients and families in a collaborative, trust-based partnership approach to establish diagnosis, discuss treatment options, and manage symptoms, concerns, and health issues related to such complex disorders.
