Overview

Services

I take care of patients as I would want my own children cared for. One of my strengths is communication. I strive to speak with families in a clear and understandable manner, while remaining open so that they are comfortable asking questions and approaching me with concerns. I greatly enjoy the relationships that develop with my patients and their families over time. I love being a pediatric surgeon and feel very fortunate that I am able to help children and families.
