I am a pediatric otolaryngologist at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and the medical director of the new Pediatric ENT program in Wellington, serving the Palm Beach community. I treat children with a variety of ear nose and throat conditions, including chronic ear infections, hearing loss, tonsil and adenoid disease, congenital syndromes, noisy breathing, voice disorders and sinus disease.
I knew I wanted to be a doctor at a very young age, and was inspired by my uncle, who is a neonatologist. I enjoy working with children and their families, and having the ability to make a difference in their health and lives through medical care and surgery.
In addition to providing patient care, I'm also actively involved in teaching medical students and young doctors as they embark on their careers in medicine.
Before joining Memorial, I developed the department of Pediatric Otolaryngology for Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas, as part of Children's Physician Services of South Texas.
I was also very active in the community in Texas. I volunteered and served on the board of two local non-profit organizations: Special Hearts in the Arts, which helped individuals with special needs explore the arts; and Kids Get Fit, which targeted the problem of childhood obesity through nutrition, mindfulness and physical activity programs.
Now, at Joe DiMaggio, I'm proud to be a part of a team devoted to caring for children in the Broward and Palm Beach community.
