About

Bio

A fellowship trained full scope of practice independent rural family physician in private practice, I see patients of all ages and genders. My practice includes outpatient clinic, inpatient hospital/ICU, surgical obstetrics, gastrointestinal endoscopy, office/hospital procedures, and chronic care management. A former iron man triathlete, I help patients with weight loss, and do some sports medicine. Due to my service in the US military and deployment experiences, I provide limited outpatient wound/burn treatment and see veterans. I've enjoyed several faith based medical trips to third world country bush mission hospitals, and provided some medical/surgical/dental care there. I volunteer precept medical education at my practice. I enjoy family time, traveling, exercise, and volunteer work.
