Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

I have clinic expertise and experience in my over 20 years of practice in Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Disabilities, Brain and Spinal Cord Injury, Musculoskeletal Impairments, toe walking, Ehler Danlos Syndrome and muscle tone differences including high and low muscle tone.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

I utilize physical, occupational and speech therapy prescriptions to optimize a child's function and comfort. I run a brace clinic where we fabricate different orthotics to optimize, alignment and function. I direct a spasticity clinic where we see children with different levels of disability secondary to spasticity and come up with an optimal treatment plan. As Clinical Director of the Kireker Center for Child Development I communicate daily with physical, occupational and speech therapists to improve outcomes and interventions.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I was inspired to become a doctor when I was a child and went to my own pediatrician for care and saw the impact he had on my life and well being and wanted to devote myself to the best possible patient care for children. After I began in Medical School I spent time in a school with disabled children during a rotation and immediately knew this was the population that I wanted to work with to improve quality of life.
