One of my particular interests is in children with complicated aerodigestive issues, sometimes stemming from a prolonged intubation if they were born prematurely, or other issues that can impact both the way they breathe and the way they swallow. So here at Rush, I work very closely with our pediatric pulmonologists and our gastroenterologists, along with speech-language pathologists, and we try to offer a multidisciplinary approach to our patients and their families, where they can come to a single appointment and see all of their healthcare providers on the same day. And I think this is really nice for families, because it minimizes the time that they're running back and forth to the hospital, and more importantly, it puts all of their doctors in the same place at the same time, so we can work together to come up with a treatment plan. Working with children is a very unique experience, because there's a time that you can be silly and have fun with the kids, and there's a time to be very serious when you're talking with the parents. And being able to mix those two together and be there for a child and their family during what can be a very stressful time in their life is something that's very rewarding. And I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with these families and be a part of these kids' lives.
