Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine after completing an internship at a children's hospital as an undergraduate. Seeing the positive impact that I could have on people's lives motivated me to become a physician. Obstetrics and gynecology offers an opportunity to play a major role in one of the most important and memorable moments of a patient's and their family's lives.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I bring 14 years of experience in taking care of my patients since completion of my residency. Eleven of those years were spent in central Pennsylvania, where I practiced primarily as the sole physician for obstetrics and gynecology at a community hospital. The volume and responsibility that I gained in that experience has served my patients greatly during my career.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
"Family time" is my priority when not practicing medicine. Whether it's coaching a baseball team for one of my three sons or finding a new place to eat in York/Adams County with my wife, we spend as much time together as possible. Mountain biking and skiing with my boys provides ample fresh air and exercise for all of us.
