About

Bio

I have been in practice for over 20 years. I treat all aspects of general surgery. I specialize in hyperhidrosis. I also specialize in breast diseases and surgery.

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.
