I love our practice at West End Pediatrics. I grew up on the Upper West Side with my grandparents. My grandfather, who was an internist and quite the character, had his office in our apartment. As a four year old I believed that his patients lived in our living room given the amount of time they spent there, sharing ideas with their doctor and entertaining the little girl with the impossible hair. Clearly that experience impacted on my approach to patients so many years later.
I am constantly learning from our patients, from their parents, and of course from my three children. I have been inspired by the families in the practice to look out of the box, both in the evaluation of the child and the subsequent treatment of illness. Medicine is constantly changing and I have found that both looking forward yet maintaining the values of the past serves me well.
I have also learned there is no perfect balance in terms of career and family but at the same I have found enormous satisfaction in both.
