Philosophy of Care

To me it is important to understand the patient's perspective. This will help us to maximize their health goals. In addition, having a child with type 1 diabetes and another who had a liver transplant, I understand how it feels to be a parent navigating through the medical system. I strive make the patient experience as worthwhile and comfortable as possible for parents and their children.
