I’m a pediatrician at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital in New Haven, CT, specializing in the care of children with breathing and sleep problems.
I graduated cum laude from Yale with a degree in English, and attended medical school at the University of Connecticut. I did my residency in Pediatrics and my fellowship in Pediatric Pulmonology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and stayed on there as an attending physician in the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine from 2007. In 2013, I returned to my old college stomping grounds at Yale, where I am an attending physician in Pediatric Pulmonology, and Director of the Pediatric Sleep Center. There, I have built a comprehensive sleep program for children, the first of its kind in Connecticut. I’m boarded in Pediatrics, Pediatric Pulmonology, and Sleep Medicine.
I live outside New Haven with my wife and our two boys. Once my first son was born, I learned the vital lesson that there is often a gulf between textbook “perfect” parenting, and what actually works in the real world.
About this site:
It wasn’t long after I began my practice that I started to get phone calls and emails from friends, friends of friends, family members and their friends, and my wife’s cousin’s mailman. They all had questions and needed advice. Why does their kid get up at night? Should they be worried about their kid’s cough? Do those tonsils really need to come out?
There are few pediatric sleep specialists nationally, which makes it hard for people in need of help with sleep issues to access care. There are relatively few web-based resources as well. At this site, you can find help: not direct clinical care, but advice which will hopefully point you in the right direction. My goal is to provide simple, evidence-based information to families and physicians.
