On Patients
"I really enjoy interacting with young families as they raise their children. Each child is unique, each family deals differently with the challenges of raising children and illness in children. I find that parents are really good observers and that their history is vital to my practice of pediatrics."

On Specialty
"I tell all of the students and residents I teach that pediatrics is the greatest specialty. Where else can you find such an enthusiastic, appreciative group of patients? Kids may squirm, cry and make faces during their exams, but they usually respond with a smile by the end of the visit."
