I was drawn to pediatrics because of the great responsibility that it entails - in particular, the opportunity to be a child and youth advocate, and the potential to set up each patient for a lifetime of good health.
In the office, I use a collaborative, evidence-based approach to deliver comprehensive care to children of all ages. I am committed to establishing trusting relationships with each patient and family, working closely with them to support their physical and mental wellbeing. With a focus on preventive medicine and health education, I am passionate about involving patients as well as parents in their own care.
It is a privilege to care for children, and I am proud to be a part of Weill Cornell Medicine's pediatric team.
