Philosophy of care
I believe its my job is to help to protect kids from the things that can really hurt them, and then stand out of the way and watch with amazement as they take on the world!
Being a parent can be so hard, you always wonder if you’re doing it “right." What kids really need is for you to love them, be honest with them and do your best. I try to help normalize the struggles, and encourage parents to trust themselves and their intuition.
Why Dr. Udland went into medicine
The human body is amazing and resilient. I was attracted to the idea that we could unlock its mysteries, but the more I learned, the more mysteries I discovered. Now I get to share what I’ve learned about medicine and pediatrics with patients and their parents -- including the unanswered questions. I love the teaching aspect of medicine.
Favorite advice to give to patients
Kids are so resilient. They don’t need you to be perfect. They need you to love them, be honest with them and do your best to keep them safe and healthy. My advice is:
- Never leave the house with less than 2 diapers.
- Always have snacks.
- Listen more than you talk.
I love running, skiing, biking, hanging with my family and exploring the world through my kids' eyes. I also love a good sauna or fire with friends!
