Professional Statement
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.

While this provider is good during appt.'s - His follow-up is VERY BAD. In the past he's not responded to follow up emails, nor followed up with results, refilling prescriptions.

[...] doctor recommended doubling evening dose of sleep med even though doctor was told that lower dose resulted in extreme grogginess next day, inability to wake in morning. So, didn't make sense to me. I didn't ask about this, that part is my responsibility.

The doctor made me feel safe. I trust him. He listened to me. And he asked me about my book.
