About

Bio

Board Certified in Family Practice since 1989 . I have been practicing in the same privately owned Family Practice for 26 years that now has 7 physicians and 2 midlevels. Also have been active hospital staff of our local hospital and continue to be involved with inpatient care. I enjoy prevention.

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.
