Meet The Doctor

What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?

They will receive a physician who will listen to their complaints and try to find an explanation for their problem. I will also try conservative non-operative approaches when indicated.

What is the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship and why?

The most important factor is trust – period.

What hobbies or activities do you enjoy when you're not working?

I enjoy gardening, fishing and spending time with my wife and three children.

What about your line of work do you find the most rewarding and why?

Simply having a patient thank you for getting them through a difficult time in their lives is the most rewarding part of my line of work.
