About

Bio

I am from Augusta, Georgia and am the son of a physician, who was a pathologist. My father was a tremendous role-model for me, and I continue to try to follow the example that he set for me. I went to medical school at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA, and then did my residency training at Memorial Medical Center in Savannah, GA. I really enjoy my career as a diagnostic radiologist. It is very satisfying to be the one that many primary physicians rely on to make the diagnosis.My area of expertise is in CT guided procedures- such as biopsies and drainage catheter placement. I currently practice in Naples, Florida at the NCH Healthcare System.

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.
