Personal Statement

In my opinion being a good pediatrician is not just being able to diagnose and treat, but also being able to develop the trust of both the child and the parents. Seeing, experiencing, and participating in the growth of a child and his family is what pediatrics is all about. 

Every child is an individual and every family something special.
