Why I entered medicine

My choice to go to medical school seems to have begun long before college and was the result of a very idealistic view of life and a desire to use the gifts God had given me in the most effective way. My career as a pediatrician was really chosen for me. After third-year medical school clinical rotations in family medicine, internal medicine and then pediatrics, my wife said to me, "You need to be a pediatrician." She reminded me of one very special 8-year-old patient who was dying of cancer yet who was the patient whom I talked about the most and whom I looked forward to seeing the most each day. After a few minutes of thought, I never looked back. And I've never regretted the decision.

Personal interests

Ideally my faith in God would define me as a person. A few years ago, I wrote up a personal mission statement that encapsulated my broad goals. That statement said that I want to be in a growing and dynamic relationship with God that allows me to be more effective in my roles as a husband, father and physician. My thoughts have not changed in the intervening years. I have a passion for doing things excellently, completely and with compassion. I feel that this is a direct outgrowth of my faith. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, reading, landscaping/yard work, running and working in my local church.
