About

Bio

I'm an Endocrinologist at a busy Multi-Specialty Clinic in Amarillo TX. We can do most diagnostic procedures right here, so patients don't have to go all over town for their tests. Hobbies include geocaching, reading, swimming, online activities, and cheering for the Oklahoma Sooners.

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.
