Practice Philosophy: I deeply believe in treating the whole child. I want to help my patients grow and thrive as children and young adults and never let their disease define who they are as a person. It is an honor to be a member of the pediatric hematology and oncology team; I get to build long-term relationships with amazing young people and their equally amazing families. I believe in strong communication and clarity to ensure that everyone understands what is going on and what to expect in the future. Children and their families are at the center of the treatment team. Together, we create the best possible care plan, so children can flourish.
