Quote: It is a privilege to be a pediatrician and to have the opportunity to work with children and their families. My goal is to help my patients achieve their optimal physical and emotional health so that they can have a happy, healthy and productive life. I consider the whole child, their nutrition, development, educational, and psychological needs. I want families to feel confident that their pediatrician has up to date knowledge and connections in the medical community that can facilitate the best health care possible for their children. The practice strives to be accessible and helpful, both in the office as well as on the phone. In addition to an excellent clinical staff we have a neuropsychologist, educational specialist, and developmental specialist available for consultation. Our practice is part of HealthConnect IPA, working with an integrated network of excellent Family Practice and Internal Medicine physicians as they transition their care into adulthood.
