About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

Medicine to me was always the art of applying science to help others. I specifically chose the field of Gastroenterology because of the mentors I worked with during my training. I enjoy the blend of seeing patients in the office and hospital and performing procedures.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I try my best to devote the necessary and appropriate attention to my patients while providing evidence based care. I find it important to share the gift of laughter with my patients and feel that listening is often more important than any tests, medications or procedures we can order.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I like to spend time with my immediate family including my wife, our son, and our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I love music (Billy Joel and Elton John are my favorites), movies, learning to play piano, and anything Halloween.
