Practice Philosophy

I believe that all children deserve to be evaluated and treated in a comprehensive and compassionate medical home environment. I practice a holistic medical approach where treatment of children is done in partnership with their family and their cultural/belief systems within the context of their home and community environment. I provide evidence-driven medical practice excellence utilizing community-based support systems and resources in collaborative partnership with other medical providers for the patient. I am a partner and advocate for families of children with chronic health conditions and developmental disabilities.
