I enjoy spending time with my wife and children. I am an avid baseball and football fan (dedicated to the NY Yankees and NY Giants).
I enjoy the challenge of using both a detailed history and a thorough physical exam to deduce what may be wrong with a child. Often a child can not tell you what is wrong so you have to rely on your ability to figure out the issue and then address it correctly. Pediatrics gives me the opportunity to be the first interaction a child and their family has with the medical community. I strive to make that a great experience and to make it special. I appreciate the trust that families place in me and I strive to never let them down when it comes to caring for their most precious member.
