Scarlett McKinsey, M.D.
I chose the field of neonatology because of my love for basic physiology and because I find it a privilege to work with babies and families during what can be a time of a great deal of stress. In addition to providing the best possible clinical care to my newborn patients, it is my job to make a difficult experience a little bit easier on the family.
