Meet The Doctor

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

Patient focused care, availability, and respect for the patient and their needs.

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

  • Communication- Appropriate diagnosis and treatment depend on your ability to share your symptoms and concerns, along with their ability to listen
  • Empathy- Doctor who fully understands where a patient is coming from is better able to build trust and provide advice and treatments that align with the patient’s needs.
  • Trust- Trusting that your doctor will deliver ethical guidance best suited to your particular health needs is another must-have in a healthy relationship.

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

I enjoy spending time with family, church, reading, bike riding, cooking, fishing and gardening.

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

The most rewarding aspect of being a doctor is a tie between the joy of seeing people get better with your help and knowing that your family members are proud of you and what you do.
