    Biography

    What I Do
    I believe my job is to partner with the patient in their care. I like to get to know my patients, what they want from their care, and share in the decision-making process. I enjoy offering full-spectrum family medicine care and have clinical interests in pediatrics, sports medicine, and procedures such as lesion removal, laceration repairs, biopsies, vasectomies, and joint injections.

    Why I Love My Work
    I love having the opportunity to talk, connect, and help people. I grew up around medicine and have always been fascinated by the human body. With a wife who is also a family and addiction physician, family medicine has provided us more flexibility to raise our four children.

    Eight years ago, I survived brain surgery and radiation. Today, I am grateful for the opportunity to provide the quality care I received to my patients every day.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I like sports such as baseball and golf, hiking, fishing, hunting, and reading. I also enjoy coaching my son’s baseball and basketball teams and spending time at the lake.

    I enjoy finding different ways to connect with my patients and have a good time with them. I like to make my patient visits as laid back and comfortable as possible.
