Physician Profile

About

I have always been fascinated by the biological sciences and attending medical school was my childhood dream. I remember accompanying my mother, also a pediatrician, when she made home visits to a young girl in India suffering from rheumatic fever. The compassion with which she treated her patient and the gratitude shown by the parents left a lasting impression on me. Improving a child’s quality of life and making an impact on a patient and their family led me to pediatrics. Knowing I could help with their nutrition and growth led me to pursue pediatric gastroenterology.

As a physician, I enjoy interacting with kids and their families. Listening to the parents and the child is vital. You never know what small piece of information might be crucial to their care, diagnosis and treatment. Above anything else, I find joy in becoming a part of a child’s life as he or she heals and grows.

For over 20 years I have practiced and been faculty at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and the University of Maryland in Baltimore. Coming from larger cities, I wanted to start a pediatric gastroenterology practice and offer specialized care in a smaller community. I found that opportunity here and have been impressed by the community, mountains, lakes and gorgeous views. I have been married to my husband, an engineer, for 30 years, and we have two young adult children. My daughter is a pediatrician as my mother before me, and my son is an engineer. Outside of work, I spend time reading, painting, running and hiking. In the past, I have been a court-appointed special advocate for children in foster homes and look forward to becoming involved in this community as well.
