About

Bio

I am a 42 year old family physician. I am from Kentucky. I did my Medical School training at the Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine and my internship at Southern Ohio Medical Center in Portsmouth, Ohio. I completed my residency at the Grandview Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio. I enjoy many doing procedures in my office including biopsies, joint injections, nail removals, and many others. I am board certified in Family Medicine. I am a big fans of the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Mets, Morehead State Eagles, and North Carolina Tarheels.

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.
