What do you like best about your job?

"I love my patients. If you ask any pediatrician, you will 100% get that same answer. Children are fun patients, and often resilient, even under the worst circumstances. I love getting updates from families, as patients flourish outside of the hospital. In my discipline specifically, I see fascinating pathology. Pediatric Cardiology is often a life-long journey that starts with the fetus. I have gotten to see a fetus somersault across the ultrasound screen, make the prenatal cardiac diagnosis and help shepherd families through pregnancy, along with maternal-fetal medicine. The full range of continuity comes when you meet the child after birth and help guide the family through the journey of having a child with congenital heart disease. As a noninvasive advanced imaging cardiologist, I get the best of two worlds as a diagnostician (with imaging) and a clinician. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
