  • The principles of service, education, and teamwork are central to my approach to patient care as a pediatric physiatrist. We have a unique opportunity in our field to work closely with other healthcare professionals to impact children's lives and improve their well-being by helping them achieve their functional goals at home, in school, and in the community. I believe in empowering kids and their families by listening to what's important to them, teaching them about their condition, and partnering with them as we make a treatment plan.
