Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in adolescent and young adult medicine. This includes all primary care needs of adolescents, including those transitioning into adulthood as well as young adults up to age 30. I also care for patients with a variety of complex needs, including those with various chronic illnesses, eating disorders, behavioral challenges, reproductive health concerns, developmental difficulties and patients facing diagnostic dilemmas. My priority is to provide personalized care with a broad view of each young person's entire life with the goal of promoting positive development and future success.
