I am board certified in family medicine and a member of the American Academy of Family Practice. I completed medical school at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in 1997 and completed a traditional rotating internship in St. Louis, MO in 1998. I completed my family medicine residency at Kansas University Medical Center, graduating in 2001. I was inspired to go into medicine by my father who was a hospital administrator and my brother who is a physician as well.
I see patients for a variety of illnesses and injuries in an urgent care and previously practiced traditional family medicine for 12 years. I find a variety of illnesses both challenging and rewarding. I find gratification in helping patients with immediate problems and facilitating patient medical education.
