I am board certified in Pediatrics, Pediatric Pulmonology, and Sleep Medicine. I am the medical director of the Pediatric Sleep Program at Yale New Haven Hospital and am an assistant professor at Yale Medical School.
I care for children with respiratory problems, especially children with neuromuscular disease. I also see children with both respiratory and non-respiratory sleep disorders.
I have an active online presence as I feel that it is our duty as physicians to provide high-quality, accurate content for patients and their families.
