About

Bio

I believe that the best doctors don't know everything, but they know where to look it up. And the answer often starts with Google, but leads down a path that branches into treatment, history, biochemistry, infection, immunology, physics and yes, students, math. So a lifelong interest in *everything* is a great attribute to being a great doctor. Would that we had enough time to learn about everything!

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.
