When appropriate, she makes referrals to specialists and prescribes medication.

Philosophy of Care
Emily cares for her patients with the whole family in mind. She strives to provide kind, compassionate care with understanding of family circumstances and cultural beliefs. She consciously uses a gentle, age-appropriate approach to interact with her patients. She believes a pediatric primary care practice is the medical home for a patient, guiding and directing the care in all areas of health and wellness from birth to high school graduation.
Emily’s clinical interests include the care of newborns to adolescents; premature infants; aiding in breastfeeding difficulties; and the diagnosis and management of asthma, ADHD, eczema, headaches/migraines and autism.
