Why did you choose a career in family medicine? 
Family medicine allows me the chance as a physician to help patients in a variety of areas of health care. It offered me the opportunity to help some achieve and maintain their physical and mental health care needs and keep others educated on their care, safe, happy and productive with their endeavors. 
 
What do you enjoy most about being a doctor?
I enjoy most meeting new people as patients and being a helpful part of their lives. I enjoy the interactions and caring relationships we develop.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I like spending time with my wife, son, daughter, in-laws and friends. I spend significant time fishing and hunting for native American artifacts. I also like to watch movies and putz around my 120 acres of woodland.
 
What is something you want patients to know about you?
I care deeply for each patient's well-being. I work for the patient always, having their best interests in mind. I see our relationship as a partnership in achieving high-quality health care for them. It is an honor and pleasure to serve as the patient's family physician.
