Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Department of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics)
Chief, Division of General Pediatrics, Department of Pediatrics
I trained in Gastroenterology and Nutrition but I returned to the practice of General Pediatrics and retained my clinical activities and interest in non-procedural gastroenterology. This suits my many interests and I practice and write about both. Within general pediatrics, my interests include the diagnostic process, diagnostic errors, the practice of general pediatrics, well-child care, the application of evidence-based medicine to pediatric practice, and the use of electronic health records. Within my subspecialty, I am primarily interested in nutrition, lipid disorders, cardiovascular health, obesity, and infant formula.
I have been a regular panel member of the FDA orphan drug review process and I also enjoy acting as a reviewer for journals. I review for Pediatrics and JAMA pediatrics and for the Journal of Pediatrics. I was recently appointment to the Editorial Board of Pediatrics in Review. I never turn down an invitation to review a manuscript and I approach these reviews with the hope that my input will be constructive. I understand and appreciate the effort involved in writing.
I teach residents every week and I am always evaluating literature to share with them. Is this article worth their limited time? This has made me aware of what is important, clinically relevant and useful.
While the practice of pediatrics has always been intellectually engaging to me I view it fundamentally as a job of service to patients, students, resident trainees and to my peers.
