  • “Care is collaboration between physician, patient and family.”

I approach care as a collaborative undertaking between physician, patient and family. This is especially true when dealing with children's heart problems, which often require long-term care. As children grow, their medical needs change, and their ability to learn about and participate in their own care increases, until they eventually achieve independence. To optimize the chance of life-long success, everyone needs to work together.

I am most proud when I see patients whom I have cared for over many years grow up and do the normal things that every other child can do to the very best of their abilities.

When one of my former patients graduates from college, gets married or has children of their own, it is a reason to celebrate.
