I was born in Chicago IL and moved to beautiful Tennessee when I was 16, I fell in love immediately and knew I wanted to stay. I did my Pre-Med at UT Chattanooga and I graduated from Loyola Medical School in 1993 and began my practice shortly after in 1995. I am married and have two children. My daughter is my assistant and if I am lucky my son will take over the practice when I am old. I wanted a practice that my patients would enjoyng being a part of, very laid back and comfortable, where we "know" each other not just a person in the chair. I love to read, spend time with my family and friends and I enjoy fencing and shooting in my spare time.
