Specialty services provided:

As a pediatrician, it has been a tremendous privilege to care for my patients and their families for over 25 years. From birth to young adulthood, I treat common illnesses and refer patients to specialty care when necessary.

Beginning at birth, I monitor the growth and development of my patients and provide appropriate medical interventions if necessary. I also counsel and reassure parents as they deal with the various challenges of raising children. In the school-age child, I address learning problems and psychosocial issues to help my patients grow up to be happy, healthy, and successful young adults.
