I am a board-certified pediatrician practicing at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin primary care clinic in Kenosha. I earned my medical degree from Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in Downers Grove, IL. I completed both my Pediatric residency and my Neonatology fellowship at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, IL. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (F.A.A.P.). I specialize in newborn care, and look forward to being your child’s first pediatrician.
In addition to performing surgery and prescribing medicine, I incorporate Osteopathic Principles and Practice to enhance the body's own ability to heal. When appropriate, I use Osteopathic manipulation to normalize structure and function of the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine can improve the effects of antibiotics, ease discomfort and speed recovery.
Since graduation, I have served on the faculty of Midwestern University, currently as Course Director in the Department of Integrative Medicine and Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. I was recently named in an article of Chicago Medicine for piloting the Socratic Method of teaching at Midwestern. I value the opportunity to be at the forefront of medicine in mentoring student doctors.
I am an avid outdoorsman, and I also enjoy gardening, fishing, cooking and making wine, along with spending time with my wife and our three sons. In caring for young children, I promote diverse activities for children that include outdoor physical recreation and an appreciation for nature.
I am accepting new patients and am honored to partner with parents in nurturing healthy, well-rounded children.
