Personal Statement

As a physician and pediatrician I feel gratified that my work helps my patients attain health and well-being. A well-functioning immune system is central to human health. As an allergist/immunologist I have the privilege of working with patients and their families to develop a plan of intervention that includes nutrition and lifestyle and medical interventions to attain optimal immune function. My clinical interests include primary immune deficiency and allergic disease. Working in an academic institution, I have the benefit of collaborating with world class experts in immunology and related fields to advance our knowledge of immune dysfunction and provide the most comprehensive and up to date medical care for my patients.
