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.

The staff and Dr. Al were all so personable and really took the time to listen to my concerns. I was confident in the care we received and the treatment plan that was developed. I would highly recommend Dr. Al and the staff in the nephrology clinic!

Dr. Al was very accommodating, he was really knowledgeable and helped explain things to me. That I did not understand, I feel like I trust him very much and I trust him to care for my son and he did all the right things. Just to double check and make sure my son was okay and I really appreciate that and he also took the time to actually call me with a follow up on on the test results and take the time to explain things to me. So I could understand that is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Very knowledgeable, and excellent service, was able to convey the information that we needed to know so that my child could understand it as well as myself.
