Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
From a young age, I have had an interest in the sciences. I have also been a "people person." I sought a profession that would allow me to interact regularly with people in a meaningful way and that would hopefully allow me to have a positive impact on their lives.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I spent 29 years practicing general surgery and colorectal surgery in York, PA, until my retirement from my surgical practice in 2016. Since that time, I have been working at the WellSpan York Wound Care Center on a part-time basis. I also work a few days per month for WellSpan Gastroenterology.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Since retiring from my full-time surgical practice, I have enjoyed transitioning into the "part-time lifestyle", and spending more time with my family. My wife and I have been married since 1982. We have three adult children, two of whom live in York. I am active in my church and in my Masonic Lodge. I play French horn in the Red Lion-Felton community band and alto horn in the Dockenspielers German Band.
