During my 18 years as a general pediatrician, I have enjoyed caring for teens and their parents. A few years ago I learned there was a critical shortage of Adolescent Medicine specialists, so I decided to complete an Adolescent Medicine fellowship so I could provide the specialized care teens and young adults need.
Each teen is unique, as is each parent. I have practiced by the motto, “I am a different doctor with every patient, and I always try to be the doctor my patient wants and needs.” I work with teens to optimize their health and well being as well as help teens and their parents optimize their relationships. For teens, I hope to help them maximize their potential and make the transition into young adulthood as happy, healthy and productive individuals.
