WHO WE ARE
Meet the doctor
In January of 2001, I opened Newton Wellesley Children’s Doctor: a Solo pediatric practice. My main reason for establishing the Solo pediatric practice was to be able to provide genuinely individualized, high quality care for children in a family-oriented, traditional office setting. I wanted to become a Solo practitioner to provide children and families true continuity of care by being there every day to address their medical concerns. Each and every family has consistent access to me as their very own pediatrician, day and night. This, I truly believe, provides every child with the type of care old time family doctors afforded their patients, not so long ago.
In my over 25 years of pediatric practice, I have seen my little patients grow and thrive into adolescence and young adulthood. Being a Solo practitioner has blessed me with close connections to my patients. The beauty of a quality, long standing pediatrician/patient relationship is that it encourages my patients to see me as another trusted person to reach out to as well as a confidant for personal, medical concerns. This is why some of my patients continue to see me well into their college years and beyond. I continue to welcome this, as my patients often find it easier to address their medical concerns with the same doctor they’ve known growing up. Long term, close knit relationships with my patients are a huge part of my professional legacy as a pediatrician.
In addition to addressing the many medical conditions children have, I have deep interests in the following:
- Holistic approach to nutrition and lifestyle that supports emotional health as well as physical health
- Connections between gut health and improving the immune system
- How to read and respond to your child’s behavior in ways that bring out their best potential
Each of these areas would be individually tailored to your own child and family dynamics.
Outside the Office
At home, I love gardening and using the homegrown vegetables in cooking. I highly value spending time with my husband and two daughters. As a family, you can generally find us outdoors hiking, bicycling, gardening, and walking through the neighborhood. We love nature!
