Personal Statement

I love teaching new parents and empowering them with the soothing skills that I have learned over my thirty five plus years of pediatric experience.

What better task in life them improving the world by having a positive impact one child at a time. The reason I'm a pediatrician is explained to me every day in the eyes of each newborn and the smiles of every child I see.
