Philosophy of care

Your return to health benefits from my holistic approach, which involves not only anatomy and physiology, but also a psychological continuity that helps the body's innate healing capacity. When dealing with an injured worker, the occupational medicine team strives to address all aspects of the patient/work interface. We know that returning a patient to optimal performance is similar to returning an athlete to the field; strength, flexibility and stress management all will be more effective in the context of a positive, winning attitude.

Why I entered medicine

I trace my interest in medicine to a high school experience: I was very impressed by my doctor as I was dealing with a sports-related knee injury. He was so knowledgeable and compassionate I found myself following his instructions diligently, leading to a very positive outcome while avoiding surgery. I wanted to make a similarly positive impact on people's lives.

Community involvement

I look forward to getting involved upon returning to Schuylkill County after 30 years out West.

Personal interests

I enjoy mountain biking and the outdoors in my free time.
