Professional Summary:

I am an attending physician at the Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Health Center of Excellence, The Robert Warner Rehabilitation Center, Oishei Children‘s Outpatient Center. I am trained as both a pediatric psychologist and pediatrician. I completed my PhD at The Ohio State University (‘93) in psychology with an emphasis on behavioral pediatrics and a post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine/Children‘s Seashore House. I practiced as a pediatric psychologist for 10 years before entering medical school at St. George‘s University (‘08). I completed my residency in Pediatrics at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. I have 25 years of professional experience specializing in developmental disabilities. I evaluate and treat children and adolescents with a wide range of developmental and behavioral difficulties including the following:
• Learning disorders and other school-related learning problems;
• Attention and behavioral disorders;
• Tics, Tourette syndrome, and other habit disorders;
• Regulatory disorders including sleep disorders, feeding problems, discipline difficulties, complicated toilet-training issues, enuresis (bedwetting), and encopresis (soiling);
• Developmental disabilities including Down syndrome, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, and visual and hearing impairment;
• Behavioral and developmental problems complicating the full range of pediatric chronic illnesses and disabling conditions (for example, genetic disorders, epilepsy, prematurity, diabetes, asthma, cancer).
