Philosophy of care

I use for you and each of my patients the same treatment philosophy used for professional and college athletes, adjusted for your activity level.

Why I entered medicine

My goal since sixth grade was to be an orthopedic sports medicine physician, and I very much learned from and enjoyed my time as an assistant team physician for the Cincinnati Bengals and for the University of Cincinnati, and as a physician for pro tennis and beach volleyball tours. I am proud to return to my community to provide the same or better care than I received during my own athletic career.

Community involvement

I am involved in numerous outreach events. I also provide athletic coverage for Lehigh University and multiple area high schools.

Personal interests

When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children, as well as traveling both locally and abroad.
