      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      • Love Newborns!!!!
      • First two years especially. The most emotionally difficult part is vaccinations. But! NO BRAINER! If you don't want your child vaccinated, please don't join my Practice. There is continued research on painless vaccines (unfortunately -- not in USA) still pending.
      • My Non-Office speciality is Newborn Intensive Care. Premature Neonates, Lung Disease, Ventilators, Cool Procedures & other fun stuff in a Hospital Based setting.
      • In the Office, we generally see Airway, gastro-intestinal, febrile, bone and a variety of other disorders. Routine Physicals for Schools, Health Maintenance visits........
      • ALL my patients have my Cell Phone #.......They can text me 24/7.....I can request images, ask follow up questions, request they go to ER, follow up in the Office next day......From any perspective, we solve most issues.
      • Academically and administratively! I currently Chair a Pediatric Department and Direct a Neonatology Unit. I stay current on my reading including SPONGE BOB
