After spending my childhood in the Lower Mainland, and completing an undergraduate degree in Biology at Simon Fraser University, I graduated from the UBC Faculty of Medicine in 1994. After three years at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, and a final year at BC Children’s Hospital, I completed my residency training, and in 1998, joined what is now known as Fairmont Pediatrics.
As a consultant paediatrician, I enjoy caring for children of all ages. I have a particular interest in newborn care, and care of children with medical complexity. From 2017-2022, I was Medical Lead of Pediatrics and Newborn Care at B.C. Women’s Hospital. I enjoy teaching medical students and residents, and I am a regular collaborator for educational activities for family physicians and midwives. I have been honoured several times over the years with BC Children’s Hospital Family Centred Care Award.
My philosophy of care is based on open and honest communication with families, and embracing their role as equals in helping to provide care to the children we see.
I live in Delta and have three adult daughters. My wife is a Child Life Specialist with Fraser Health. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, fishing and playing golf. In addition, I am one of the original members of the “Pedihatricks” ice hockey team.
