My primary clinical interest is in the area of asthma, including severe asthma, difficult to treat asthma, and early asthma. Additionally, I study health behavior change and medication adherence in children and adolescents. My goal is to not only provide children and families with the most up to date and evidence-based therapies to treat their disease, but to also provide them with the tools that they need to implement these therapies in their daily lives. Medicines only work if we can find a way to help you to take them!
I work to provide the best possible care for my patients. I believe strongly that parents are the best advocates for their children, and I strive to actively listen to concerns and develop care plans in conjunction with families to meet their needs. I believe that the best outcomes for children happen when everyone works together, including providers and families!
I am especially interested in the care of children with asthma, but I see children with many different lung diseases!
