    Philosophy of Care

    I believe that the pediatrician is the foundation of a child’s medical home. More than just caring for children, pediatrics also means caring for the whole family. It is a place where children and their parents come to have their concerns addressed and questions answered. I emphasize preventative care medicine, discussing common issues and questions before they become a problem. I also use the latest evidence-based medicine to guide my clinical practice. Each child is unique and I tailor my practice to meet each family’s distinct needs.
