About

I am board certified in general pediatrics and pediatric critical care medicine.  I work in the pediatric cardiothoracic ICU, caring for children with congenital heart disease, and pediatric urgent care.  My wife and I opened a pediatric urgent care in 2015.  Our urgent care practice was acquired by PM Pediatrics in 2021.  I enjoy focusing on online education and advocacy.  I am active on social media and have a blog to provide useful information about medicine, in general, and acute care pediatric issues.
