"My goal is to have a unique provider of care relationship with my patients. I want to know what they need and advocate for their wishes. I work with colleagues, parents and nurses to ensure our patients receive the best treatment and hospital experience. I also help the parents and patients manage the physical and emotional response to their health conditions and illness. I respect and value my patients’ cultural and spiritual beliefs, and maintain their privacy and confidentiality."
