Bio

I have been in practice since 1981 after completing the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, in Cleveland Ohio. I did my podiatric surgical training at Straith Memorial Hospital for special surgery in Southfield, Michigan. I practiced in suburban Detroit for several years and then moved to Virginia in 1984. I have been able concentrate on the office expanding its scope to include diabetic wound care and surgical procedures of the foot and ankle. I have seen many medical and technical changes as well many political changes in medicine in my 33 years of practice. I have recently retired from active practice as of August 15, 2015
