After years of painful arthritis forced retirement from my general and vascular surgical practice I returned to an active medical practice in Primary Care. Based on thirty years in a successful surgical practice I am qualified to manage potential problems that might result in surgery. I specialized in laparoscopic and vascular surgery including endoscopy and interventional pain procedures. I have been practicing Primary Care since 2009 specializing in geriatric problems, wound and pain management are other areas of special interest. I am told I am very thorough and compassionate and believe that listening is very important first step to making the correct diagnosis and the best decisions regarding care.
