Why did you choose to work at Rainbow Pediatric Center? Rainbow’s reputation in the community initially drew me to consider working here. Meeting Dr. Reddy and hearing her passion for pediatrics and her philosophy regarding the care and well-being of children clinched it! She and I share a very similar approach and vision for pediatric care and I felt very “at home” from the beginning.
What do you enjoy about working with kids? This job is about as much fun as it is challenging! I love the candor at which kid’s approach the world; their laughter is infectious and keeps me coming back for more very day!
What is your area of expertise? I’m Board Certified in General Pediatrics so my expertise extends to most facets of outpatient pediatric medicine, but I have a particular interest in well child and well adolescent care; helping kids thrive and preparing them for life beyond our practice.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not at Rainbow Pediatrics? I enjoy being outdoors, especially being on the water, boating and kayaking. I also love playing and teaching golf and spending time with my family.
If you only had 3 words to describe yourself what would they be? Driven, efficient, and kind
What is your favorite children’s book? Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman.
Tell me about your family? I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Jackie for almost 15 years, and we have two amazing daughters, ages 6 and 10, who are the center of our world!
One interesting fact about yourself? While in college I participated in a 48 hour non-stop dance marathon to help raise money for children with pediatric cancer.
