Accepting New Patients
Philosophy of care
I believe children are a unique population of patients that require a physician dedicated to their well-being. I believe they are vulnerable and often unable to speak up for themselves. I believe that each child and family should be treated as if they are my own relation.
Why I entered medicine
I entered medicine for the satisfaction of being able to help and offer hope to those who are ill. I chose pediatric hematology oncology because these children have a serious illness and their parents are at the lowest point of their lives, and I can provide them with hope and compassion.
I volunteer at Camp Dost, a camp for children with cancer. Since 2003 I have helped there, and love seeing how this experience helps kids who are dealing with cancer enjoy time just being kids.
I enjoy many types of sports, but specifically like basketball, baseball, football, and golf. I also like to go canoeing and doing physical fitness activities.
