Personal Statement

With my background in pediatric critical care, I appreciate the value in building a strong multidisciplinary team that has at its center the patient and his/her family.  This team includes not only a patient's core group of physicians and nurses, but also sub-specialists across disciplines and ancillary staff.  Providing valuable care by ensuring best outcome for every single patient constitutes the core of my medical practice.
