I help support families when making decisions about the treatment plan of their child. Education is very important to pediatrics. I provide a variety of resources to help families, including printed material, verbal instructions, and websites. I encourage families to be involved in all aspects of their child's care. I listen to my patients and their families. After all you know your child the best. I value families and their input. I always try to communicate in a clear, timely manner and share all pertinent information with patients and their families. I strive to treat every patient and their family with dignity, compassion and respect.
