  • I am a double board certified Pediatric Endocrinologist and Obesity Medicine Specialist. I have a passion to make a broader impact in healthcare and have experience in Academics, Private practice, as well as in managed care and population health. One area that is underserved is Pediatrics. My goal is to improve access to pediatricians and empower patients to not only prevent but to take care of chronic disease and to live healthier lives starting in Childhood. Most recently, I have completed my MBA and been selected as a Doximity Telehealth Fellow. My goal is to provide the best care for my patients and increase access to pediatric subspecialists across the country.
