About

Bio

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.

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.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you for your time. Several doctors and I have been trying to figure out for months why tongue has been swelling.

I had another doctor say it was safe. I'm not sure what to do. I use all those topicals but they don't work for me. Thanks though.
