About

Bio

I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a BS in Mathematics and went to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, where I obtained my MD degree. I then completed my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Thomason Hospital in El Paso, Texas. I was chief resident my senior year of residency. I then moved to the Flower Mound Area. I have been practicing in Flower Mound for 10 years. I live in the area with my wife and children.
