What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
I view my relationships with patients and their families as teamwork. My goal for your child is your goal. I aim to enable all my patients to avoid emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and to breathe easier. I strive to develop treatment plans that allow patients and families to control their symptoms, rather than letting their symptoms control them.
What inspired you to become a doctor?
I knew I had found my calling during my overnight shifts as a pediatric resident in Boston in the neonatal intensive care unit. I would pick up the "older" babies from their incubators, carry them over to a rocking chair, and hold them. They warmed me as I kept them warm and I knew that my work was giving them a better shot at life. I've been dedicated to helping children ever since.
