Practice Philosophy: I am committed to family centered, individualized care of my patients. My role as a physician is to help
families understand the disease process affecting their child, the full range of treatment options available, and to support the family in selecting the course of action that best fits their needs and beliefs. I strive for a holistic approach, working with the pediatrician and other specialists to ensure a
comprehensive, coordinated plan is in place for each child.
