My Story

For the past 25 years it has been my great pleasure to keep my patients healthy. Over last few years it got progressively more challenging to provide the primary care pediatric care within the insurance constraints and shortened visit times. Rise in Autism prevalence and lack of timely affordable diagnostic resources led me to devote time and get trained in proper autism diagnosis. Rise in pediatric obesity and personal health led me to get Board certified in Lifestyle Medicine. I wanted to establish a practice without insurance restraints , with affordable cost where I could use my training in Autism , Lifestyle Medicine while continuing to take care of sick kids when they need it most. The value of direct connection without barriers between my patient's parents and myself became even more evident over last year as I handed my practice over to a capable and progressive Primary Care Pediatric company. I look forward to realizing my dream of simple effective and compassionate care to my patients when they need it.
