About

Bio

I believe in open access of medicine for all, and am especially interested in rural primary care access. I love providing different procedures for my patients. I am very interested in obstetrics, pediatrics, dermatology, and pulmonary/sleep medicine. I also love a more holistic approach to health, and provide osteopathic manipulative medicine to those patients who would benefit from it. I am not adverse to discussing herbal or alternative remedies, and believe that the body/mind/spirit must be all taken care of to achieve optimal healing and overall good health.

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.
