My Passion for Healthcare

I was always interested in science growing up, and my pediatrician was a great role model for me. Medicine and pediatrics felt like natural fields to enter, and I feel strongly about my devotion to my profession. I love pediatric nephrology as it allows me to participate in outpatient, inpatient and intensive care medicine. I also have the honor of establishing long-term relationships with my patients, and assist in seeing them through their particular disease processes.

My Clinical Focus

I care for patients with chronic kidney disease as well as end-stage renal disease. Our group provides both in-center hemodialysis and home peritoneal dialysis. I care for patients after they have received a kidney transplant as well. I also care for patients with hypertension, urinary and electrolyte abnormalities, nephrotic syndrome and various forms of glomerulonephritis. I see children from the neonatal period through early adulthood. I perform kidney biopsies when appropriate, and work closely with my surgical, urological, hospitalist and ICU colleagues.
