What inspired you to get into Family Medicine?
The family doctor that I saw when I was growing up. He was hard working and dedicated to his patients’ health. I also enjoy the challenge of finding answers to medical problems and being able to diagnose what illness is affecting my patients.

What can a patient expect when they come in for an appointment?
My patients can be assured that my staff and I will do our absolute best to care for them.

What do you like to do in your downtime?
I like to fish, cross-country ski, jog, ride bike, build model railroads, spend time with family and visit my grandchildren. I am also a Merit Badge counselor.

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I am a veteran of the U.S. Marines.
