About

Bio

I am a Family Physician in Toledo, Ohio. I trained at UPMC Shadyside Hospital in Pittsburgh. I have been in Academic medicine, Urgent Care, Emergency Medicine, and currently have a private practice. I teach medical students, residents, and physician assistants. I am a Medical Director of a local long term care facility. I also participate in medical missions around the world. I enjoy playing and listening to music, reading, watching movies, singing and cooking. I enjoy playing many sports and outdoor activities. I am married with 8, no typo here, 8 kids that keep my life away from medicine very busy and fulfilled.
