About

Bio

I am a general surgeon with almost 30 years experience, with a very wide scope of practice and experience. I enjoy educating my patients, as well as mentoring medical students and PA students. I am very active in state and national leadership positions within my profession, and I love what I do.

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.
