I have been a board certified internist for nearly 20 years with a career as a primary care physician assistant prior to attending medical school, so my dedication to healthcare spans over 30 years. I have a special interest in preventive medicine and sports medicine. I have spent the last 11+ years in the United States Air Force as a flight surgeon, providing care to our aviators and their families. My expertise also includes occupational medicine, quality and risk management, patient safety, and provider credentialling. In addition, I have deployed overseas 4 times and have experience in the aeromedical evacuation of our wounded warriors.
