Biography plus

A strong patient-doctor relationship is the cornerstone of quality medical care and is forged through effective communication along with mutual trust and respect. This relationship is truly a partnership in which both the patient and doctor work toward a common goal of health and wellness. To make this partnership effective, I believe in placing a strong emphasis on education to empower patients to take an informed and active role in their health. It has been my privilege to enter this partnership with my patients and I strive to provide the quality of care that I would expect for my own family.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys when I am not working. My hobbies include photography, music, strength and conditioning training, golfing and most other sports.
