About

Bio

American Board of Family Medicine certified, Fellow American Academy of Family Physicians. Recently transitioned from a full time family medical practice in a busy outpatient employed position. I have been incorporating telephone encounters into my practice for over 40 years and video encounters within the past 5 years. Ages of patients are generally about 4 years to all geriatric patients. I enjoy all aspects of family medicine to include targeted women's health issues and men's health issues. I enjoy pediatric medicine and have a practice history of doing over 500 obstetric deliveries along with the care of infants and children. Previously served as a physician executive and associate professor in family medicine with 30 years leadership experience.

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.
