About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I actually wanted to be a vet, so I talked to my family's vet. He recommended that I consider medicine, as there were more med schools in the US than veterinary schools. He also knew that I really desired to help people. So, on that one conversation, I decided to go after med school. I majored in pre-medicine at PSU. In my junior year of college, I had confirmation that I would go to med school, and a few months later was accepted at PSU College of Medicine.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I love talking to patients, reassuring them and giving more answers and peace about their situation. I love having fun with patients, which helps them to feel more comfortable with the office visit. When appropriate, I pray with my patients, as well.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

In my spare time, I like to hunt and fish and garden. I have exercised for the last 30 years—running at times with my wife. I also am very involved in my church and teach Sunday School. I have gone on seven medical mission trips and have organized the medical portion of the last six mission trips to Haiti. I love to spend time with my grandchildren. I also like to travel and ride my motorcycle.
