I am a board certified general pediatrician who provides care to a diverse population of children.  I truly enjoy working with the patients and their families as well as the hospital teams to provide the best care possible. I believe that patients and their family members are an integral part of the care team and their input is valuable.

Clinical interests

I have a special interest in pediatric hospital medicine. As a pediatric hospitalist, I care for children during their stay in the hospital for acute and chronic medical conditions.

Research Interests

My interests include medical student and resident education. I also have a strong interest in optimizing the electronic medical record system for providers to enhance efficiency and optimize patient care.  I am involved in quality improvement projects within our department as well.
