My Passion for Healthcare

I remember feeling powerless to help a loved one when they were taken to the hospital. Patient and family centered care in medicine is a way to help families lessen that feeling of powerlessness. The more they know about their diagnosis and care plan, the more control they have in taking care of their bodies.

  1. Pediatric Care for Hospitalized Children
  2. Multidisciplinary Care

Degree & Residency

  • Medical School

    Albany Medical College, Albany, NY

  • Residency

  • Board Certification

My Clinical Focus

I practice pediatric hospital medicine. It is a high-stress environment for families, and fostering a partnership with patients and families during this difficult time is critical. I appreciate guiding medical students and residents through their pediatric training to become well-rounded and sound clinical physicians, dedicated to excellent patient care and recognizing the importance of communication both inside and outside the hospital.
