About

Bio

I am originally from New Jersey. I went to college in Clemson South Carolina. I spent one year working for the New Jersey state Department of Health instituting emergency medical facilities throughout the state. I subsequently spent four years in medical school in Kansas City Missouri. I then went one year in postgraduate training in Detroit Michigan. After training I had a military obligation from a health professions scholarship program and spent four years at Naval Training Ctr., San Diego as a general medical officer. While there I was medical officer for surgical support team 10. I became the Navy liaison to the San Diego County disaster preparedness committee. Because of my muscular skeletal interest in background I received a special letter from the Cmdr. of orthopedics for the San

Specialties
