About

Bio

I grew up in the mid-west (Illinois). I attended Loyola University of Chicago for undergraduate school (four years), Chicago Medical School (four years), internship at Univ of Wisconsin Medical School, and residency training at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. I am board certified in Family Medicine. I have my own private practice. I teach 4th medical students from MCG (Medical College of Georgia). I love what I do and feel it's a privilege to be able to contribute to those in need. Have a wonderful day.

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.
