I see pediatric nephrology patients both in the hospital setting and in the outpatient clinic. I teach medical students, residents and fellows alongside my clinical work. I have a particular interest in systematically improving the quality and value of the healthcare the pediatric nephrology group delivers to children with kidney disease. My overarching goals are to improve patients medical outcomes by consistently and reliably delivering the treatments with the most evidence of being helpful, improve patient safety by redesigning systems to reduce medical errors, and to improve the patient and family experience of disease and medical treatment using thorough but clear explanations and education materials.
