About

Bio

I am board certified in Family Medicine but have practiced Full-time in the emergency room setting for over 5 years now. This has allowed me to gain new and expanded perspectives on how to treat each clinical scenario I encounter. I really enjoy both the emergent clinical scenarios as well as primary care. My primary goal as a physician is to treat the patient as a whole and not simply focus on singular issues. I am most interested in preventative medicine which allows patients to remain healthy with more quality years of life to enjoy. I have a beautiful wife who was my high school sweetheart and we have three amazing children together. We love our local church and enjoy watching our children grow in Christ.

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.
