get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

It offers the opportunity to see a wide range of disorders with a unique mix of critical acute inpatients and chronic outpatients. I like procedures, also, and nephrology gives us the opportunity to perform different procedures without the life-style sacrifices often required in procedure-dominated subspecialties.

I like working with kids because...

children are precious. I love the moments when I am working to make a child feel better and suddenly, the child smiles! I get great pleasure from watching children grow, I like to be a crucial part of each child's development.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

the hospital is well known to offer an outstanding care for children and families. The hospital is looking after its employees, also.

Dayton Children's is special because...

good reputation, strong support from the community, clear goal and mission of giving the best care possible for kids and families.
