Philosophy on patient care:
As a pediatrician, I believe that best outcomes are achieved when there is a collaborative effort between the family and the physician in caring for the child. As the young patient grows and matures, he/she should become an active participant in the collaboration, gradually taking on more responsibility of making decisions.
Clinical interests:
My interest in preventive medicine is what led me to pediatrics. I believe that if we start early, instilling healthy lifestyle choices in our young patients, we will have healthier adults, with less obesity, diabetes, substance abuse and STIs.
Personal interests:
My personal interests are spending time with family and friends, traveling and jazz.
