“I most enjoy hearing about my patients’ days.  Children have such a unique view of the world and I love learning what makes them smile; sometimes it’s getting to the next level of Fortnite and other times it is as simple as eating macaroni and cheese for dinner.  My goal is to always make their experience with me one of the things that makes them smile.”
