Patient Care Bio

As a neonatologist, Dr. Scheible's first and foremost goal is to provide excellent clinical care to her patients. She believes it is critical to work collaboratively with parents and bedside care providers to achieve the best outcomes for our babies, even in highly complex clinical situations. She encourages her care team to incorporate parental concerns into their daily assessment. By doing so, they can have a complete understanding of the patient's condition not just based on objective data available to us, but also the more subtle, and difficult to gather, "intuition" that only a parent can provide.

As part of the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation team (ECMO) team, Dr. Scheible has a special interest in caring for babies with persistent pulmonary hypertension, who struggle with adapting their circulation to an ex-utero environment. The complex, labile physiology and individual variability that such babies experience is exceptionally challenging, and requires an intensive, interdisciplinary approach to help them transition.

She feels that as neonatologists her job is not to just address the immediate problem, but also understand the long-term risks and benefits of each of our treatments. For her, balancing these short and long term goals, in cooperation with the parents and care team, is the most difficult and rewarding aspect of being a Neonatologist.

Dr. Scheible has received the "Patient and Family Centered Care Award" and holds "Bronze Star" level which is direct recognition from the families and patients in which she serves.
