WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a pediatric rheumatologist, I treat an array of autoimmune conditions and illnesses in children, including inflammatory arthritis, lupus, inflammatory disease of the muscles and vasculitis. I enjoy the challenge of taking care of children with these hard-to-diagnose conditions, as well as the opportunity to treat the whole patient, since rheumatic illnesses tend to be multi-system diseases. I am always honest and forthcoming with patients and their families. I find it important to give possible risks and concerns context, putting them in perspective, in order to lessen parents’ anxieties regarding their child’s diagnosis and treatment. I am proud to have spent my entire career here at Duke in our long-established, leading pediatric rheumatology program.
