get to know me
I chose my specialty because...
I wanted to help children safely participate in exercise and activity, while managing their illnesses and injuries appropriately.
I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...
I wanted to work in a setting which sees children as a unique population of patients who cannot simply be treated as small adults.
Dayton Children's is special because...
Dayton Children's is big enough to provide excellent care to children with a variety of conditions, but small enough that you know colleagues in other departments who see the same patients.
