As a family physician I enjoy and feel honored to care for the entire spectrum of family medicine. I have special interest in caring for infants and young children, and I specialize in breastfeeding medicine. My teaching, lecturing, and research experience has largely centered around breastfeeding and human lactation. I believe that people need to take an active role in their health care and family physicians should be proactive in patient advocacy. I encourage people to be open-minded about complementary medicine options.
