As the son of two physicians, I had the benefit of seeing the joy that one can bring to their community by helping people feel better or get through a difficult health issue. My approach to patient care is to take the patient's concern to heart. I make myself available to address their concerns or questions and let them know I will be there throughout their care. My areas of clinical interest within general surgery include the gallbladder, appendix, colon cancer, hernias, hiatal hernias and dialysis access. Outside of work, I enjoy water skiing, fishing, bike riding, trap/skeet shooting and video games.
