Care Philosophy

Philosophy of Care: I believe in preventative care, and Pediatrics embodies the essence of that philosophy. It is far more beneficial for our health to get ahead of a disease process than to do damage control later. I follow and practice the principles of osteopathic medicine, which tell us to treat the patient as a whole person, not just a medical problem. I also think that it is important to let the body self-heal when it can, minimalize interventions to when medically necessary.

In My Own Words

Why I Became a Medical Provider: For as far back as I can remember, I could picture no other profession except physician as being a potential career. There are many things that attract me to it, but most of all that it is a true social and service oriented occupation. I find Pediatrics to be the most humbling of all specialties because it is a great privilege to be able to take care of someone else's child.   Personal Interests and Hobbies: Cooking, Hiking, Traveling Community Involvement: I grew up in New Jersey/New York, did my residency in Michigan, and now I'm very excited to be on the West Coast. In the past, I've been very involved in adolescent health education through organizations such as the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship. I hope to serve the Santa Cruz community at the same capacity.
