I am a general pediatrician with a special interest in the care of hospitalized patients and in the education and training of medical students and residents.  My philosophy of care is one that is family centered and respectful of each person’s unique role in the care of the patient.   I strive for collaboration and clear communication between the family and medical team at all times.  My goal is to address the needs of the family in a compassionate and professional manner and to role model that approach to my learners.
