My patients.

Learning more about how my patients celebrate the various upcoming holidays, and then helping them find a way to enjoy the important treats and traditions while staying healthy and well!

What do you think?

The joy of children knows no bounds and brings light to any day. I especially love getting down on the floor to listen to a toddler’s heart while we’re still on friendly terms. #Pediatrics

My patients telling me they are now healthy enough to enjoy the holidays, travel, and family gatherings. And then there are the priceless hugs.

Scott Wright, MD, Johns Hopkins

Witnessing the way that members of our care team go above and beyond for our patients fills my heart with gratitude. I am so lucky to work with an interdisciplinary team of colleagues that constantly looks for creative ways to support our patients. These collaborations “lighten” the load that any of us carry, thereby allowing each of us to shine our light more brightly and broadly.
