About Me

As a pediatrician with additional training and certification in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, it is my privilege to care for the wide variety of ill and injured children that present seeking our help at all hours. I enjoy the pace of outpatient medicine, the thrill of the unexpected, the challenge of the diagnostic dilemma, and the joy of walking into an exam room, sitting down, introducing myself, and asking the child and family “now what can we do to help today”? I particularly enjoy working in the academic clinical environment with medical and other students, and physicians in training at all levels, as we work our way through the evaluation and management process. Before every shift I try to remind myself to serve as an effective role model and teacher as they improve upon their craft. Pediatric emergency physicians have an extraordinary opportunity to serve as the “welcoming face” of their institution; I treasure that role and am proud to build upon the strong Duke University Medical Center foundation to improve the health status indicators of the children of our community.
