Academic Title: Clinical Professor

"Childhood is a very short period in a person's life. Yet events during this period will have an indelible impact on his/her entire life. As a member of the pediatric cardiac team I try to face each child and each family with humility, kindness and best expertise I can offer. I feel it is our duty to make each child's life as meaningful as possible."
