About

Bio

I am a board certified family physician who enjoys helping people live healthier lives. I hope experience has taught me to listen first, speak later. Hobbies include reading, bicycling, and swimming, especially with my golden retrievers.

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.
