Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
For as long as I can recall, I aspired toward a career in medicine. I was fortunate to have a very strong role model growing up, as my father was a local primary care physician in East Prospect, PA. He was able to make a positive difference in so many patients' lives, and I could see the gratification he garnered from that. In my 20+ years in family medicine, I have been provided with that same satisfaction, while being given the everyday challenge that a career in medicine provides.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
In my time away from work, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with family and friends. I also enjoy playing golf and many other outdoor sports.
