“I often tell new parents that we will become family members over the years. There are few people other than immediate family who can watch a child grow up from birth to 21 AND be privy to all of the highs and lows of the growing up process. Helping families navigate the difficult times is what I feel we do best.”

“I enjoy the camaraderie of the staff, willingness to work as a team.  I enjoy the diversity of the patients and their willingness to embrace a new doctor, hard being the new face sometimes.”

“I enjoy the supportive, friendly atmosphere of the office. I feel as if I have came back home after nine years. I especially look forward to blending my old patients, whom I have taken care of for years,  with new ones that I am currently having the pleasure and privilege of meeting.”

“The best part of being a pediatrician is being able to walk into a hospital nursery full of babies and marvel at how we start life.  With only the need for love, nourishment and shelter with no biases, fears or expectations.”

“Nothing is more satisfying than helping a scared new parent realize that they can raise a happy healthy child and keep their sanity!  It’s been a blast raising my own child and using techniques that I’ve been trained in. My husband always seems surprised when the techniques work.  I usually have to remind him, “honey, this is what I do for a living!”

“I have the privilege of watching my patients grow up from infants to adults and building relationships with the entire family. I love that I get to guide families through tough times and celebrate successes with them too.”

“There’s a saying: If you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life. To be here this long, you’d have to believe that!”

“I love that I get to partner with families to promote optimal health for each unique child. On any given day, I am privileged with the opportunity to provide education to parents of newborns, to provide guidance to children and teens, and to provide care to those who are sick.”

“Many of my colleagues are like second family and this makes coming to work all that more enjoyable.”

“I love that this practice focuses on the ‘whole’ child.  We not only treat physical illnesses, but we also assess for emotional and mental health issues that may be hindering a child’s ability to reach their fullest potential.”
