About

Bio

A NATIVE OF JACKSONVILLE, I RETURNED HOME TO ENTER PRIVATE PRACTICVE IN PLASTIC & RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY IN 1981. THIS WAS AFTER COMPLETING MY RESIDENCY AT THE PRESTIGIOUS UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI SCHOOL OF MEDICINE UNDER DR. D. RALPH MILLARD, JR WHO IS REGARDED AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PLASTIC SURGEONS OF THE MILENNIUM. I CURRENTLY HOLD AN ACADEMIC APPOINTMENT WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA SHANDS-JACKSONVILLE AS AN ADJUNCT CLINICAL ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR. I ALSO SERVE AS THE PLASTIC SURGEON IN CHARGE OF THE JACKSONVILLE CLEFT LIP & PALATE CLINIC, WHERE I HAVE BEEN ACTIVE SINCE 1981.
