Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I always liked science when I was in school and liked to help people. I was a respiratory therapist/pulmonary technician for 5 1/2 years and wanted to advance my career. I went back to college and medical school and am now in practice for over 15 years.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am kind, honest, easygoing and a good listener. I like to get to the cause of the medical problem and resolve it for the patients.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I like to play guitar, do various activities with my children and go to the beach. I also like to play sports and enjoy the outdoors.
