All professionals at Edgewater Pediatrics maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in the medical field. Read on to learn more about our staff's experience and training.
We are committed to offering the highest quality care to this community. Our doctors are well trained and board certified in pediatrics. In addition, our staff and doctors have experience providing culturally aware care to people of different backgrounds, and have done humanitarian medical missions in Haiti. They also have additional experience in hospital care, emergency/urgent care, and sports medicine for children and adolescents.
At Edgewater Pediatrics, we are focused on providing pediatrics services that put the health of the child first. For most healthy children, the best care is preventive care. Many conditions go away in a short time and are not improved by medications. Our job is to use our extensive experience to help families understand what may or may not be wrong and the safest, most effective, and healthiest ways to deal with any illnesses and prevent your child from suffering through unnecessary tests and treatments.

Get to Know Me
I’m a native Floridian who was lucky enough to stay in Florida. I have five children of my own, from very young to young adult. So, I know firsthand what my patients are going through at every stage — and what their families are going through too. One of my most meaningful activities outside of work is doing medical missions to Haiti.
Why I Treat Children
I went into pediatrics because I enjoy being around kids of all ages. I decided to specialize in urgent care because it gives me the opportunity to impact the health of children at very important moments in their life.
What I'm Passionate About
I’m passionate about making sure that children are diagnosed correctly and get the right treatment for their condition, without unnecessary treatments and procedures.
How I Try To Make A Difference
I try to explain things to parents in a way that helps them better understand what’s going on with their children and how to help them heal.
