Philosophy of Care

I team with my patients and their families to meet our common goal of fighting a disease in the smoothest way possible. As a pediatric nephrologist, I care for a wide range of problems affecting the kidneys, ranging from simple problems like protein and blood in the urine to dialysis and transplant. I love to take care of my patients, providing a helping hand to them and their families when they need it most.
