My Approach to Care

"My approach to a child’s care includes the entire family and healthcare team in the decision-making process. I treat each patient as if she or he were a part of my family. I believe that all children are entitled to excellent healthcare. I understand that my patients and their families have individualized goals. I strive to help all of my patients lead their happiest and most fulfilling lives."
