Where I see patients

The Children's Clinic

About Me:

I try to tailor my approach to the development stage of the patient. For example, the 15-month checkup is notoriously the most difficult one. I tell parents that 9-month-olds are puppies, 12-month-olds are kittens, but 15-month-olds are baby badgers. It’s just the nature of that age. I find it rewarding to interact and manage most checkups without upsetting the child. I am not always successful, but I think I have learned some things over the years that give me some insight. I enjoy having fun when it’s appropriate while knowing when, also, to be serious. I always strive to give the best care and advice that I can, as clearly as I can, without hesitation to refer to a specialist if I am not confident in the diagnosis or plan.
