“As a pediatrician, I am committed to working together with each of my patients and their families to help establish good health practices and offer healing in times of illness.”
I believe that childhood and adolescence are two of the most precious periods of life. As a result, as a pediatrician it is truly a joy and privilege to work together with patients and their families as they navigate the different developmental stages of childhood/adolescence, as well as to care for them when ill. In order to provide the best care for my patients, I believe it is important to form an open and honest partnership so we can work together as a team to maintain good health and happiness.
Within the field of pediatrics, I have a special interest in caring for children with non-malignant hematologic diseases as well those who have undergone therapy for cancer. Prior to joining The Everett Clinic, I completed a fellowship at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology to gain expertise in this specific subspecialty. I am excited to bring this subspecialty knowledge to The Everett Clinic, and to help care for children with non-cancerous blood disorders.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I joined The Everett Clinic because I share the Clinic’s philosophy that the practice of medicine is a team enterprise with the ultimate goal of doing what is best for each individual patient. Open communication, trust and respect are all deep commitments of both The Everett Clinic and myself, and allow me to form the most helpful and supportive relationships with my patients and their families.
