It is a privilege and honor to care for children and their families. I enjoy partnering with families to provide excellent medical care that works for their homes and lives. Collaboration and strong relationships are the foundations that I build my practice on.
I am primarily interested in caring for patients with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and pulmonary hypertension, especially those patients who are ventilator dependent with severe lung disease.
