Professional Summary:

My clinical expertise is focused on pediatric hospital medicine. I practice an evidence-based, patient- and family-centered model of care at the John R. Oishei Children‘s Hospital. Here, I care for children and adolescents exhibiting a wide array of illnesses and health issues, including infectious illnesses of the blood, skin, lungs and kidneys; respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia and croup; chronic illnesses such as diabetes and asthma and common pediatric illnesses such as influenza and dehydration. I also care for children and adolescents recovering from injuries or surgeries. I have a particular clinical and research interest in pain assessment and treatment as well as adolescent addiction medicine. I am the Medical Director of the Medication Assisted Addiction Treatment Program at Endeavor Health Services. In this capacity I evaluate and treat patients 14-24 years of age addicted to heroin and/or prescription opiates.

Additionally, I have expertise in the psychological aspects of physical illness, which allows me to offer comprehensive care to my patients. Prior to medical school, I completed a PhD in school and child clinical psychology and a postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology. I then practiced for more than 10 years as pediatric psychologist, applying the principles of psychology within the context of pediatric health and aiming to promote the health and development of children and adolescents and their families through use of evidence-based methods. In treating patients medically, I tap my expertise in assessing and treating behavioral and emotional concomitants of illness, injury and developmental disorders--and preventing illness and promoting health and health-related behaviors.

I appreciate the importance of good communication between hospital-based providers and the patient’s primary care provider and ensure that my patient‘s primary care providers are alerted when their patient is admitted to my service. This allows the primary care doctor the opportunity to offer insight to the patient‘s medical history. At discharge, I carefully review the resident‘s discharge summary to make sure that the primary doctor knows what happened and why. I appreciate primary doctors’ time and ensure that the discharge summary is concise but brief.

I teach medical students and residents daily. I allow my trainees to form their own assessments and plans, and I use their presentations as a platform to offer positive reinforcement, personal experience and evidence-based medicine teaching. I often ask trainees to research a topic and give a brief presentation on rounds. My goals are to foster collaborative learning, encourage a supportive learning environment and build the confidence of my trainees as they test their knowledge and skills.
