What inspired you to go into medicine?

I wanted to pursue a career in science, but I felt that working in a lab was not fulfilling. I needed personal contact with patients to make me happy. I chose a career in pediatrics because I felt children were the most vulnerable population and I had the greatest joy working with them and their families. I became interested in pediatric gastroenterology in part because I could also use endoscopy in the diagnosis and treatment of various conditions in children.

What do you do as a provider at MGHfC?

In addition to being a senior member in Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at MGHfC, I am involved in the Inflammatory Disease Center of Excellence and serve as the director of Pediatric Endoscopy at MGHfC and at MassGeneral for Children at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. I am also the physician director of Network Development at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center.

What gives you the greatest joy in your profession?

I most enjoy the long-term relationships I have with my patients and families.
