A fascination with the human body and human condition drew me into medicine. The field of pediatrics is compelling due to the rapidly changing nature of our patients as they grow and develop within their community, school, and family units.
It is a true honor to care for children and their families. I am especially passionate about promoting a healthy mind, body, and spirit through proper nutrition, physical activity, and mental health support. It is my goal to establish open and trusting relationships; incorporating each family's values to make collaborative decisions for their children. Together, we will keep your children healthy and thriving here in New York City.
