get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

It is honor comes with a tremendous amount of responsibility. My patients rely on me to be their personal physician during surgery. My patients need me to be their voice , eyes and their advocate to act on their behalf to keep them safe. The trust i see in their eyes is priceless.

I like working with kids because...

they are so innocent and touch every aspect of my humanity.

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

of their wonderful collaborative team that cares for all with big heart.

Dayton Children's is special because...

it cares.
