Clinical Interest for Patients
My primary clinical interest is asthma, including difficult-to-treat and severe asthma. I am the co-director of the Multidisciplinary Asthma Clinic, which takes a team approach to improve asthma care for children by working with Allergy, Pulmonary Medicine, Social Work, Speech Therapy, and Nutrition. I also see patients who have environmental allergies, food allergies, nasal symptoms, drug allergies, and hives. While I am happy to see children of all ages, I am particularly interested in helping adolescents transition their care from pediatric to adult medicine.

Care Philosophy
Before going into Allergy, I completed a combined residency treating both children and adults. Given this background, I care deeply about how a child's asthma and allergies can affect them both now and throughout their lives. I appreciate the significant impact these conditions make on both the child's quality of life as well as the whole family. As such, I work in partnership with families to provide comprehensive, efficient, personalized care for my patients that fits their needs and life. I value a multidisciplinary team-based approach to form a support network for patients and their families.
