  • Taking care of the medical needs of children has been one of the many joys in my life. I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 40 years with the last 29 based in Kansas City. Trained in Pediatrics at West Virginia University in Morgantown and Endocrinology at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, I work with a patient-centered approach to provide a unique patient experience for your child and family. Ensuring quality care is at the forefront of everything I do as a pediatrician.

    I established N.W. Pediatric Care in August of 1987 as the first bilingual (English & Spanish) pediatric clinic in the Kansas City Northland. Today, N.W. Pediatric Care is recognized as a Level 2 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
