“Though my previous roles were in very specialized areas of medicine, my role as a Nurse Practitioner remains focused on the total care of the patient. The health and well-being of children has been a passion of mine from the moment I began my career. I see the development of a good relationship with my patients and their families as a critical step in the maintenance of good health.”
