About

Bio

Born and raised in Central New York State I'm from a small town just North of Syracuse, called Fulton. Early on I developed a love for science, especially Biology, so much so that I majored in it at college. I recieved my degree in Biology in 1989 from Syracuse University. After college, I attended Upstate Medical University in Syracuse where I received a Doctorate in Medicine in 1993. After medical school it was hard to choose any one field to focus on so I decided to specialize in them all and applied for residency training in Family Medicine. So it was off to Newport News, Va. near Virginia Beach to complete my residency and board certification at Riverside Hospital. After completing my residency in Family Medicine in 1996, my Wife Karin and I embarked on an incredible 1 year journey around the country where I worked 1-2 months at a time in 6 different states as a temporary doctor filling in wherever the need arose. After this whirlwind tour we decided to settle back near Syracuse where the rest of our family could enjoy our soon to be 3 kids. There I worked in a private family medicine practice for 14 years. Besides seeing patients in my office, I also was on staff at Hutchings Psychiatric Hospital and I took care of many volunteer Fire Departments and local athletic teams. Besides my professional duties I started up a running club called Lake Effect. Finally my Wife and I decided to escape the snow of New York and moved our family to Myrtle Beach, SC in June of 2010. I joined Seacoast Primary Care, a division of McLeod Hospital. I am still very involved in running and maintain a local race calendar and I also do some local health reporting for an NBC affiliate.

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.

Tell your doctor: That heart rate is not super low but it may be low enough for you to cause dizziness. Of course there's lots of other causes of dizziness but your doctor may want to start with reducing your atenolol dose.

Unlikely: The only way i could see that helping is if your ed is due to narrowed arteries in the area (unlikely at your young age) and you drop the fatty diet for a number of years, your arteries may clear out a bit allowing improved blood flow.

Cracking your joints: There are joints all along your sternum where each of your ribs meets it. Also your sternum is made of of 3 parts and there are joints between those. Each of these joints can crack like your knuckles when you stretch them. The more you do it, the more they'll crack.
