I enjoy being a pediatrician. It is great fun helping my fellow parents care for their children. There is a mountain of child care information available and my primary role is often to find the right information for each individual child for prevention, guidance,and treatments. I am a general pediatrician with an interest and special background in allergic asthma, exercise induced asthma and sports related illness and injury. My patients range in age from newborns to college students. Basketball is still my main source of exercise, singing in the choir is still a joy, too. My leisure reading includes mystery novels, historical biographies, and occasionally religious philosophy.
