Philosophy of Care
As a pediatrician, I enjoy the challenge of working with children of all ages at different stages of development. I’m a strong believer in preventive care. It’s important for parents and caretakers to be educated in the fundamentals of nutrition, exercise and social development as well as to have a basic understanding of illness and disease. This makes it easier to manage the child’s health care. I encourage my patients to participate in sports or other activities to develop their potential and promote physical, mental and social health. I try to create an atmosphere and environment that feels open and friendly as well as supportive for parents. I encourage questions, and I like to provide as much information as possible about the patient’s health status and process of care.
