Biographical: Married with three children

Pediatric Goals:

To insure the safety and health of all my patients, (including their parents). To continually educate myself and my patients of the most recent advancements in medicine, both conventional and unconventional. Most importantly, I will try to make each visit to our practice or Children’s Hospital special, if not entertaining, to both parent and child.
