University of Tennessee
Why did you choose to practice pediatrics?
I love children and they are fun to be around even when they are sick.
What is most rewarding about your work?
Knowing that I can take care of the kids and make them feel better.
If you are a parent, how does that impact and/or help in the way you provide care and work with your patients and their families?
I treat my patients the way I would treat my own kids. I love all of my patients and I treat them how I would want my kids to be treated.
When working with your patients and their families, what is your approach?
I take a lot of time to listen to the parents. And their concerns and even listen to the kids. I try to educate the parents on how to provide the best care when they go home.
How do you stay healthy and happy?
I spend a lot of time outside with my family. I love spending time with my own kids and doing their own activities and supporting them
