About Me

As a practicing Pediatrician for over 20 years, it has been an honor and privilege to care for so many fine families. Sharing with my wife the parenting duties of our 3 children has helped me understand so much the art and not just the science of what I do.

The trust relationship that I have with my patients is gratifying. The transition that occurs in new parents from the natural anxiety initially to the confidence after a few months is fulfilling.

Growing up in a family of educators, my desire is to teach and listen for areas of concern. This fits well with the new preventive medical focus of Pediatrics. We call this anticipatory guidance, simply put, sorting out normal versus abnormal and what to expect at each age.

My desire is when patients leave my office they know their concerns have been addressed and a plan and followup have been communicated well and understood.
