Bio

Retired from the University of Louisville School of Medicine where I began a Division of Infectious Diseases in 1971, but continue to teach on a voluntary basis. Gave up clinical consultative practice on January 11, 2011 and spend time with family and hobbies, including oil painting, stamp collecting and travel.

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.
