My Passion for Healthcare

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt. I knew from early on that I wanted to channel my energy into a profession that was practical, science-oriented and one in which I would have the opportunity to work with children. My work as a pediatrician is incredibly fulfilling. We are in the prime position to advocate for society's smallest members and to collaborate with their families to optimize their health, safety and well-being. I love my patients!

My Clinical Focus

I am fortunate to say that I love my job and the patients that I serve. Alongside my talented outpatient colleagues, we care for the most fragile and vulnerable of Austin – our patients are medically and socially complex, and many are recent immigrants or refugees. Additionally, my passions include resident education (training future pediatricians), and a unique model of well child care called Centering Parenting. I am the lead pediatrician for this program at East Austin Community Care, in which children have their "check ups" in a group visit starting at 2 months old until 4 years of age.
