Meet The Doctor

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

Patients can expect excellent customer service and genuine caring for you as a person, not just a number. I provide quality care in the top 10 percent of the nation. I will treat you like I would treat my own family.

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

The most important factors are trust and communication. Trust is what brings comfort and caring to a doctor-patient relationship. To have good trust, you have to have good communication.

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

I enjoy my children and their extracurricular activities, exercising and flying.

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

The most rewarding part is seeing people who start out injured or hurting finish without pain and return to a happy, functional life.
