About

Bio

I am a Florida native and even at an early age wanted to become a doctor in order to help others. My undergraduate degree was from the Mercer School of Pharmacy graduating as a pharmacist. My medical education was at the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco. I attended a two-year residency in Houston, TX at the Harris County Podiatric Surgical Residency Program specializing in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. I have performed over 10,000 foot and ankle surgical procedures and have a special interest in plantar fasciitis. I was the first in Central Florida to perform the endoscopic plantar fascial release and the first to shock wave therapy for heel pain. Now, I often prevent surgery and many pains resolved with the use of a cold pain free MLS Laser in my office.
