Additional Information

I am a primary care physician at our Cambridge Pediatrics site.

I chose Pediatrics as a specialty because I was fascinated by the many stages of development from infancy through adolescence.  I enjoy being able to help families navigate through the many facets of their children�s lives in an optimal and healthy manner. 

The best part of being a Pediatrician is that it is fun.  There is nothing better than making an infant giggle during a well baby exam.  I also like showing parents how unique and wonderful each of their children are.  I also enjoy the teaching part of my job. I feel it is important to show medical students and young doctors not only how interesting pediatric diseases are, but also how rewarding it is to work with infants, children, teen and their parents.  I hope that I show my students and residents the joy I have for working with my many young patients.

Of my many experiences outside the office, one that stays with me is the 2 months I spent in China, where I was able to see traditional Chinese medicine being employed alongside Western medicine. I very much enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 children.  I like playing tennis and listening to good music any chance I get.
