About

Bio

I am board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and hold a Certificate of Added Qualifications in Sports Medicine and have been practicing Sports and Wellness Medicine for over 10 years. I have a passion for bringing the team physician approach to those who seek to perform at their highest level.

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.
