About

Bio

Graduate of the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Medicine and Indiana University Internal Medicine Residency. My main area of focus has been in hospital based medicine and in education of medical students and residents. My favorite thing in medicine is to help patients get good information so they can learn how they can take care of themselves better.

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.
