Associate professor of pediatrics, Medical University of South Carolina, South Carolina, US
“Being able to be informed and offer the best medical advice to families is a large driving force for me. I also enjoy contributing to the functionality of my clinic so that the patient experience is the best that it can be.”
Areas of expertise
  • Breastfeeding medicine
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder 
  • Medically complex care
“I love working with children and their parents, and this is why I chose pediatrics. Watching kids grow and being such an honored part of their lives makes me happy. Working with the parents and teaching them various developmental milestones, encouraging families in their child-rearing journey, and offering reassurances are other favorite parts of my job.”
