- ABOUT -

Critical Care Medicine | Pediatrics | Physician

Being board certified in general pediatrics and pediatric critical care medicine, I work in the pediatric ICU, caring for children with congenital heart disease and critical illness, and practice pediatric urgent care as well.  My wife and I opened a pediatric urgent care in 2015 which was acquired by PM Pediatrics in 2021.  My passion is online healthcare education and advocacy which includes an active social media presence and a blog to provide useful information about medicine, in general, and acute care pediatric issues.
