About Me

I specialize in taking care of children who are hospitalized. We have not only reduced length of stay but improved patient satisfaction. We’re working on what patients will need when they go home from the time that they’re admitted, so that we can send children home healthy and with their families prepared to take care of them.

​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.
