I provide general pediatric inpatient care for children hospitalized at TCH at the Main and West Campuses. As an attending physician, I work with learners at various stages of their training, from medical students to fellows to help them develop their skills. I have a strong interest in administration and I work closely with the hospital administration to align and implement the mission of the hospital and the section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine.  In addition, I also am passionate about improving patient-physician communication and providing family-centered care.
