OVERVIEW

My pediatric practice keeps both my mind and heart happy. Some of my greatest pleasure comes from routine well child-care and discussing childhood nutrition, development, behavior, etc. I feel this is time well spent as these are the building blocks for a healthy, happy, and emotionally secure child. In addition to being a primary care pediatrician, I have several other roles. I am the director of HealthPartners and Regions Hospital Center Lactation Services as well as the breastfeeding coordinator for the state chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. I am the Director of the Newborn Nursery at Regions. I also precept pediatric and med-peds residents every Wednesday afternoon in their Continuity Clinic here at Como clinic. My family is the center of my life. We love doing anything that gets us outdoors and being active. Being a mother has helped me to be a better pediatrician, and the reverse is certainly true as well. I attended medical school at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville from 1979-1983. My residency in Pediatrics took place at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY between 1983-1986. I am a fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
