Personal

Why did I become a pediatrician? Because I love watching children grow and having a hand in helping them develop into healthy, productive adults. (Also because pediatrics is such an uplifting specialty) Helping parents understand what’s going on with their children, giving them advice on how to care for them, and helping them navigate the different stages they go through is really important to me.

I’ve been told I’m a pretty funny guy and have a reassuring manner, which is great because medicine can be a little scary sometimes. I love riding my bike and can often be found hanging out at the Yorktown Starbucks. Lastly, let it be known that I speak German, Spanish, and a little bit of French and Italian.
