"I feel privileged to be entrusted with the care of special needs children and their families.  Diagnosing and managing a rare disease, providing genetic counseling which allows families to turn their “chances to choices”, looking out for them to avoid or attenuate possible complications that come with a genetic condition and offering treatments that apply are the things that make my profession worth doing. I have also contributed to the development of pharmaceutical therapeutics of GLP-2 and Myozyme."
