About Dr. Steve
I am a board-certified pediatrician who studied at Georgetown University for undergrad, medical school, and even my pediatric residency. After eleven years in practice, I left practicing pediatrics to focus on health communication, an area that became a passion of mine as I developed this site and the corresponding podcast. I also work with Georgetown’s Blood & Marrow Collection Program performing the procedure that collects donors’ bone marrow for transplant recipients around the world.
But my most important role is being a dad to two great kids.
And as a dad, I know it’s not easy being a parent. Social media feeds are filled with parenting articles that tell you you’re doing it wrong. A Google search for health advice is bound to give you the scariest answers. And with so many questionable resources online, it can be hard filter out the best information.
My goal is to do just that—and to do it in a way that is accessible, honest, and engaging.
