About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I chose a career in medicine to further serve my community and have a direct hands-on impact on not only my patients' lives, but their families' lives as well. My view on treating patients is to think of everyone as my family member and treat them to the level I expect my own family to be treated.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am new to the Lancaster area, as I grew up in the Montgomery County area, and so far I am really enjoying the new location. I have been in medicine for 14 years now and love every second of it. There have been many changes in the last 14 years and I'm excited to see the evolution of healthcare delivery as well as clinical breakthroughs that help our patients lead healthier, longer and more enjoyable lives.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am usually spending time with my son, family and friends. We spend a large amount of our time outdoors with our chocolate lab and like to visit new areas. I am also a medical officer serving in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.
