About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I grew up in a medical family--my father is an internist and my mom is a registered nurse. Medicine has been an important part of my world, one way or another, from as far back as I can remember. I wanted to learn and understand the science of medicine--the way in which the body and its organ systems work, mechanisms of disease, and the therapeutic means that we use to prevent and treat illness. Beyond the science, the power and primacy of the doctor-patient relationship was always evident in my family; I knew that I wanted to have the opportunity to be involved in this way, too.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I'm incredibly appreciative of the opportunity to be your doctor and respect the trust that you place in me. I do my best not to lose sight of what a privilege it is to be able to practice medicine, even on the most challenging days.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I spend most of my non-clinical work time in the role of program director for the internal medicine residency program at WellSpan York Hospital. I oversee the training of 36 internal medicine residents (medical school graduates who are in the midst of a 3-year training program prior to entering independent medical practice). In non-work time, I try to be as present as possible as a husband and father to my wife and our three children, respectively.
