When I was 14 years old, I was in a serious accident. A great doctor saved my life. The experience of being a patient inspired me to want to help others and become a physician. I have been taking care of patients and their families in North Carolina for over 10 years. It is a privilege to care for patients through all stages of life. I approach each patient as a unique individual and try to provide the care I would want for my own family. I like to help my patients achieve their personal health goals, make informed medical decisions, and navigate the health care system. Having grown up in Florida, I enjoy sharing my love for the ocean and surfing with my wife and four children. I also enjoy beekeeping and gardening.
