Care Philosophy

"I have maintained a long-standing interest in advocating for children with disabilities. My primary care practice has focused on providing high quality, comprehensive primary care for all children, but especially children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). I view primary care as a collaborative endeavor incorporating the parents, specialists, therapists, educators and community resources working to maximize the health and wellness of a child."
