“Our work is critical to the patient experience. You will not find us on billboards or in advertisements, but we are the first physicians to your room in an emergency. I value the breadth of diagnosis and acuity required to diagnose and treat almost any condition from birth to age 21. I enjoy forging relationships with patients and families during their acute illnesses and at times of vulnerability. My goal is not to be remembered, but to provide excellent care, intervene as quickly as possible, prevent adverse events and get children back home in a better state of health.”
