Biography
I believe that it is important to recognize the unique needs of each individual child in order to provide the highest level of care. I strive to provide compassionate care in a child friendly environment, where education and communication form the basis for crafting a treatment plan that is as individualized as it is effective. My patients are treated as children first, and then as patients - this is the cornerstone of my practice.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.
