Neonatology, Pediatrics


Emory University, Sackler School of Medicine, Emory University


As both a pediatrician and a mom, I understand that raising children is one of the most rewarding things in life, but it can also be tremendously challenging. Arming yourself with knowledge is one of the keys to success, so you, as a parent, can make the best decisions for your child. It is extremely important that the information you learn, however, is accurate. This is why I am excited to be a part of Verywell, where we can help you optimize care for your most precious possessions.
