Care PhilosophyI believe that the best preventive medicine starts in
childhood. Helping families to care for
children and build healthy lifestyles from a young age is some of the best
medicine. For kids that have a complex
medical history it is important to have an active primary care physician to
help coordinate care and help parents to advocate for their child. I love helping families keep their children
healthy as well as support them when their children are sick.
