About

Bio

Family Physician in the Kansas City area. Have returned to academic medicine where I exclusively precept new physicians as they see their patients. I no longer have my own patient practice but am dabbling in virtual medicine. Have a strong interest in technology, virtual medicine and working to get medical care outside the walls of the small exam room.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
