My aim is to provide compassionate, high-quality, evidence based care using a team driven collaborative approach. While treating patients, I like to partner not only with other members of the medical team but also with the patient’s family. I believe that building trust, connection and partnership with patients and their families is a vital part of medical care.

Clinical Interests:

I am particularly interested in the care of children with Cholesterol disorders, Muscular Dystrophy, Short Stature and Thyroid disorders.

Research Interests:

My research interests include Hypercholesterolemia, and Type 1 diabetes. I am also interested in research in medical education.
