Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests include pediatric celiac disease and other gastrointestinal conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis), functional abdominal pain, constipation, and reflux.
My goal is to provide the best possible care for my patients and their families by truly listening to them and caring for them as I would want my own child to be treated. When your child is sick, it can be confusing, frustrating, and scary, and I want to be your partner in helping to make your child well.
In my spare time, I enjoy gluten-free cooking, hiking, reading, traveling, and spending time with family.
I have traveled to Papua New Guinea and Swaziland to provide medical care to children and adults. As a medical student I volunteered answering phone calls on the suicide hotline and also volunteered at several free clinics.
