The decision to pursue a medical degree is a life-changing opportunity. Serving patients who seek the care of a physician is a rewarding and challenging profession. As a young man, my personal experience coping with serious illness in my family was a significant factor in my choice to become a physician. I have dedicated myself to the compassionate care of my patients, who are often quite anxious about seeing a doctor. The sensitive care provide to my patients is my primary mission. I strive to make their experience as comfortable as possible. As a board-certified proctologist, I have extensive experience in the treatment of a wide range of anorectal and colon diseases. Many treatments may be provided as office procedures. Patients who require surgery are often treated in an outpatient facility where they usually return home the same day.

I feel that pursuing interests outside of my practice is essential to living a balanced life. I enjoy spending time with family and hiking, biking, skiing and swimming. To me a great way to spend a weekend is at home cooking and entertaining family and friends.
