About

Bio

With a military background and as a father of four, I’m committed to service and helping others. What I love about Family Medicine is providing a continuity of care that allows me to see and treat my patients as a whole — mind, body, and spirit. With this approach, my patients’ care experience is smooth and consistent, built on a long-term relationship of trust and understanding. As a physician, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing patients take your advice, trust your word, and do well under your guidance. My philosophy is driven by the belief that my patients deserve the same care I'd like to see given to me and my family.

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.
