As a pediatric physical medicine & rehabilitation physician, I help children affected by various ailments reach their maximum potential. I guide my patients and their families in making evidence-based decisions that meet their personal and family goals. No two situations are identical and there needs to be open communication between physicians, patients, families, and other care team members to personalize care. Additionally, as a physician scientist, I hope to learn from every patient encounter so that my research addresses actual questions and concerns of patients and their families.
