Bio

I had a full time practice in Menomonie for 30 years and now work part-time at an eye clinic in the Twin Cities. During my long career I taught some at the University of Minnesota, teaching both medical students and residents. I am now a professor emeritus there. I also taught medical technologists in the Twin Cities on both a local and regional lievel AND also taught courses on a national levell for the Joint Commission on Allied Health Professionals.

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.
