About

Bio

The skills that I have learned and developed throughout the years of medical practice has led me to acute and chronic care general medicine, difficult case diagnosis, diagnosis and management of chronic disease states and the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic pain. I feel that I can attribute these skills to the Lord. I like to say that he owns my practice, and I am simply an employee. I have always followed the guidelines of treating my patients I as a member of my family or I would want to be treated by a physician. My life is full with God, Family, Medicine, and Country. I have no complaints. Life is good.
