I have been working at Regional Pediatrics ever since and enjoy seeing the normal, healthy growth of children and the challenges that come with it (i.e. sleep problems, picky eating, discipline, potty issues, etc) and also have particular interests in behavioral pediatrics and asthma/allergy.  My wife, Judy, and I enjoy the fun and challenges of raising our son and daughter. When I’m not chasing after the kids, I enjoy sports, physical fitness, reading, and spending time at the beach or mountains.
