About Me

I’m really excited every day that I see my patients who are kids. We play a little bit, and then do the clinical work, examine them, talk to parents -- make sure they are happy and patients are safe.

​This provider is part of Lurie Children’s & Rush: Advancing Children’s Health, a clinical affiliation dedicated to providing high-quality pediatric specialty care to children. Learn more.
