About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I wanted to help people, and I can not sing or dance or play professional sports, so they were not options.


What I want my patients to know about me:

Laughter is the best medicine, and I like my patients to feel as ease. I take the trust that patients put in me very seriously, and I feel very blessed to be allowed to make a positive impact on their life. I learn as much from them as they learn from me.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I have been married for 21 years to my beautiful bride Jill and have 4 wonderful children, ages 19, 17 and twins who are 14. I enjoy camping, hiking, the beach and ghost tours at Gettysburg. We love animals and caring for wounded and baby animals. We have two dogs, Brody and Xena; two cats, Leo and Theo; two bunnies, Nester and Oreo; and two canaries.
