Biography

My goal is to provide personalized service for patients, adhering to old-fashioned ethics and modern principles of care, with a dedication to best practice methodology. The patient's well-being is the most important factor, and comes first above all others. I became a physician because I discovered that I had a true gift of caring, combined with the special skills in using my hands for healing, and acquired the wisdom and intellectual ability to cure. I have empathy for those that suffer with musculoskeletal afflictions and desire to restore them so that they may feel whole.

Once a person is accepted as my patient, I will be available for primary acute orthopedic urgencies and emergencies, as well as chronic musculoskeletal disorder management. I offer timely appointments, including same day service when necessary. I am also available for second opinions, confirmatory consultations and transfer of care. I look forward to serving you.

In my spare time, I enjoy all things environmental, whether it be the simple pleasures of walking, hiking or biking for exercise, or more technical sports such as sailing, skiing or golf. I also enjoy gaming and computing.
