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
