Philosophy of Care

I grew up in a household in which my father was a Baptist minister. There was always a strong emphasis placed on helping and healing one's fellow man. In my father's case, his choice was to attempt to heal the heart. I chose a parallel, but not less important path...to attempt to heal the body. Medicine was my calling and became my passion.

For me, every patient encounter represents an opportunity to heal, and to engage in my favorite activity - the practice of medicine. I have been in practice for over 25 years, and despite the changes within the field of medicine that tend to depersonalize the physician/patient experience, I remain an enthusiastic "Happy Warrior" who looks forward to a decade and a half more of practice. 

Personal Interests

I enjoy weightlifting, running, cycling, shooting (rifle/pistol), boating, gardening, and reading.
