My desire is to improve the quality of life for my patients while utilizing surgical training, experience and expertise. This desire was more fully realized during my Navy career when I had the privilege of taking care of combat wounded and their families for more than 20 years. Through continuously striving to achieve the best results possible, both functionally and aesthetically, I’ve refined these skills and can best serve my patients with extensive clinical knowledge. I approach each of my patients with the same seriousness and sense of mission regardless of the level and complexity of the case.

Outside of work, I enjoy the outdoors and traveling with my family. My children keep us on the move with sports, scouting, music and school activities. We lived in Italy for two years, and my wife learned authentic Italian cooking. We also have our favorite wines to enjoy with the cuisine.
