I love finding ways to help my patients enjoy childhood to the fullest without being held back by health issues. I work closely with families to understand their concerns and come up with treatment plans that are both effective and in tune with what families believe will work best for them. Many of the conditions I treat are sensitive topics for both the child and the parents, so listening to each family and establishing an environment of trust and openness is essential. I want my patients to know they are my number one priority during the time we’re together. My goal is to replace their anxiety and distress with freedom and confidence so that every family walks out of the hospital in a better place than when they came in.
