My Passion for Healthcare

I became a doctor because I wanted to cure disease, and I chose pediatrics because kids were more fun than adults. With kids, it seemed to me there was a real chance to make a difference. The most important classroom I’ve ever been in is with all of the children I’ve had the privilege of taking care of. What I’ve learned most of all is that “curing” or getting rid of a problem isn’t nearly as gratifying as “healing,” helping people to live well with problems that may never go away.

My Clinical Focus

My current clinical practice is limited to pediatric pain and palliative medicine. While I see all infants, children and adolescents with life-limiting and life-threatening disease, I tend to concentrate on children with hematologic and oncologic diseases. I also have an interest in the diagnosis and treatment of children with complex and chronic pain disorders.
