Philosophy of care

My goal is to help anyone who will benefit from my care, and comfort those I cannot help.

Why I entered medicine

When I was 9, my father was essentially hospitalized for a year after an industrial accident. Spending numerous days visiting in the hospital and seeing the care being delivered was the major factor in my decision to become a doctor.

Community involvement

I am active within my church and sponsor various charities.

Personal interests

I spend free time with my family and doing hands-on activities around the house such as gardening, landscaping and basic repairs.
