“When I grow up…”

This phrase is uttered by ambitious children everywhere. Maybe one hopes to be a fireman, another a teacher, but not often do we hear children hope for the one thing that matters most to me … that they grow up with healthy habits for a lifetime.

I decided early in my career that I wanted to dedicate my life to helping children — and parents — make choices that would help them live healthy, happy lives. I enjoy watching your children grow, and I would like the opportunity to care for them from infancy to adolescence. My role, however, is different at each stage of your child’s life. Early, you and I will partner together to make the best choices for your baby. As your baby grows, he or she becomes an integral part of the team as we all work together to keep the entire family healthy.

Medicine and Pediatrics are changing rapidly. It is my role to provide you with the latest and most accurate information. I read the latest journals and attend conferences to stay on top of the most current advancements. One of my particular specialties is pediatric obesity. The health problems related to obesity that are typically “adult” problems are now occurring more frequently in children. I have experience treating these complications, but more importantly, I can help you prevent these problems in your children. As your child’s pediatrician, you can rest assured that I am committed to providing the best medical care, and I am excited to join in this journey with you and your family.
