About Me

I take care of children with disorders affecting the kidney and urinary tract, including high blood pressure, inherited kidney diseases, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and abnormalities in the urine, such as blood and protein. I also take care of children with kidney failure requiring dialysis and transplant. It is important to me to not only treat a child’s disease but maximize their quality of life. I find it rewarding to be an advocate, educator, and source of support for my patients and their families throughout their medical journey.

If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
