Personal Statement

♦ Virtual Visit: Delivering the same level of world-class care, with exceptional convenience. 

My approach to patient care involves carefully listening to a patient’s history and concerns. I encourage input from parents and devote time to educating families about the child’s condition. With thoughtful consideration to the presenting symptoms, I proceed with focused testing as part of a guided workup. When surgery is indicated, I thoroughly review the risks, benefits, and alternatives to operative treatment. I then actively communicate the findings and plans with the primary pediatricians so all members of the provider team are up to date.
