WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a child, I was asthmatic and sick a lot, so I spent a lot of time with the doctor, and that fostered my interest in medicine and working with kids. I enjoy seeing kids, how they interact with their parents, and just having fun with them. A lot of our patients are well children, and it’s fun to see them happy and smiling and laughing. And it’s rewarding to help the kids who are sick. I try to make the visit as comfortable for the child as possible. I do a lot of examining the child in the mom’s lap or dad’s lap or sitting down on the floor with the child. It makes things more comfortable and gives us a better exam and all-round better experience. I also try to talk directly to the child. Having them feel that they’re part of the visit is really important. I love taking care of asthmatics. I have asthma and my children have asthma. It’s fun to be able to relate and empathize and really know what they parents are going through.
