Philosophy of Care
Working as a pediatrician offers me the opportunity for long-term relationships with both my patients and their parents. I chose my specialty in order to be able to care for children while they are sick, but also to prevent illness through education.
Being a mother of two children myself has made me a better pediatrician. I believe in a partnership between myself, the parents and the child. In this partnership, I emphasize the importance of regular well-child checkups during which we all can talk about nutrition, development, safety and other preventive issues that are important to overall good health.
I try to be approachable, so that my patients and their parents feel comfortable asking questions. Through UC Davis, I can offer my patients personal and quality local everyday care, in addition to referral to top specialists for more complicated cases.
