  • “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
-Nelson Mandela

Most memorable patient:

  • Karen displayed developmental delays with an unknown cause. The school system labeled her Intellectually Disabled. When I first met her in kindergarten, she could not speak intelligibly, use school tools, or play simple fine motor games without assistance. Now, at 9 years old, she can read, write, and is using her hands so much better. Karen continues to progress in all areas.
