Personal Statement

I feel it is a privilege to care for my pediatric patients and approach each child with thoughtfulness and care. In pediatric gastroenterology, I have the great opportunity to care for patients with acute and chronic diagnoses, and in outpatient, inpatient and procedural settings. I feel accessibility and communication with families and the entire medical team are cornerstones to excellent care. I cherish helping my patients grow and thrive, and aim to support families through their child’s gastrointestinal illness. I am also dedicated to medical education, and helping train the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric gastroenterologists at Weill Cornell Medicine.
