Personal Statement

As a pediatric nephrologist, I care for infants, children and adolescents with a variety of kidney disorders, including chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, high blood pressure, nephrotic syndrome, dialysis, and kidney transplant. Kidneys play an integral role in overall health, especially nutrition, growth and development. My goal is to help my patients reach their full potential so they can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.  Children with kidney disease can sometimes have complex illnesses, and I work closely with our multidisciplinary team at Weill Cornell Medicine, including nursing, nutrition, social work and other subspecialists, to provide the best possible care. In doing so, I strive to improve the outcomes for children with kidney disease.
