Overview

Best Doctors 2013I love working with children and teaching and am fortunate that I can do both. I am on the faculty of the Medical College of Wisconsin and work in a teaching clinic where we educate pediatric residents and medical students and provide medical care to underserved children.

I also have a passion for preventive medicine, specifically childhood immunizations. I serve on the Wisconsin Council for Immunization Practices, the Immunization committee of the Wisconsin chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and other local organizations dedicated to decreasing immunization disparities and educating families and health professionals on the importance of immunizations.

On a personal note, I am married to another pediatrician and have two children. I enjoy gardening, painting and time with my family.
