About Me

Associate Medical Director, Pediatric Pulmonary, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital 

I am a pediatric pulmonologist at the Cystic Fibrosis and Pulmonary Center at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. I treat patients with a variety of pulmonary issues including asthma, Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) due to prematurity, recurrent pneumonia, chronic cough, patients who are ventilator dependent, patients with sickle cell disease who have respiratory symptoms, cystic fibrosis and sleep disordered breathing.
 
What I love the most about my work is the interaction with the families. I dedicate the time necessary to spend with each family to listen to their concerns, and do everything in my power to address and treat their child. It’s so rewarding to get to know a child and their family, and see how I am able to make a difference in their life.

Prior to joining Memorial, I was assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine for five years. During that time, I was also the director of the Asthma Center and the Infant Pulmonary Function Test Laboratory of the Department of Pediatric Pulmonology at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
