I was the first pediatrician to publish medical research regarding the use of computers to calculate and document infant intravenous nutritional support. With my partners in Pediatrix Medical Group, we were able to expand treatment to infants throughout the United States, providing a new, improved level of in-hospital care for high risk newborns.
This newly emerging epidemic of Attention Deficit and Autism Spectrum disorders has inspired me to focus my training and practice on problems with childhood development. Because there has been such an explosion of families who are affected by these challenges, I am in a unique position to help evaluate all of the available research and treatments, and to provide a combination of all of the proposed therapies so that my patients have the best chance to achieve their highest potential.
