get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I enjoy children immensely. They are very resilient, open minded, interested, and unique.


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

it is a close knit community of physicians and gives me the opportunity to teach.


Dayton Children's is special because...

Small community of health care providers so I feel that we are able to personalize our care. There is very dedicated staff who are committed to the care of the children in our community.

Yes, I felt that Dr. King was very accurate and very concerned with my daughter's needs, and she seemed to have answered any questions that we may have had. And so I would recommend her to a family or a friend.

Dr. King spoke extremely fast. And she spoke in a way that was not understandable by my very intelligent 11 year old. She said words and used vocabulary that I had to basically give my child a definition for. I guess I expected a lot more out of a DO. Something more holistic, and make sure as opposed to just giving us information that we could have easily Googled. And I was very frustrated when I left the appointment, and really considered it to be a waste of 3 hours. And so yeah, I was very disappointed, and really at wits end because we've waited 2 months for the appointment.
