About Me

I joined Kaiser Permanente as its first pediatrician in Salem because I was interested in finding more family-friendly ways of delivering care. We have worked relentlessly over the years to keep our pediatric group focused on that goal.

About my practice

My special interests include UTI's, circumcision (pros and cons), autism and related developmental problems, GI problems, sports medicine and biomechanics, asthma, recurrent ear infections, autoimmune disorders, and international adoption.

How I thrive

I keep learning things from my own kids who are scattered around the world. I have been very fortunate to collaborate in the development of a new line of extreme unicycles--this process has led to some sports medicine insights.
