About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I discovered very early that I had an interest in mathematics and science, and had an aptitude in those subjects, as well. I come from a long line of physicians and healthcare providers. My father would take me with him to the hospital, and I spent many summers in the hospital as a teen both as a volunteer and in various jobs, medical and non-medical. There was never really any question I would enter the medical field—it was both an expectation and a desire. I believe that true happiness can only be found in caring for other people.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am currently a laborist. My practice is confined to WellSpan York Hospital, mainly labor and delivery, where I work closely with the OB/GYN resident staff. Most of my job involves teaching the residents, which requires a unique skill set and is very different than private practice. (I was in private practice in Carlisle, Pa. for 18 years.) I have been involved in teaching since 2004 and have won many teaching awards in the past at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. I do not see patients on an outpatient basis and have no patients of my own.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I have a wide variety of interests outside medicine. These include exercise, rock climbing, golf, photography, writing, painting, reading, tinkering around the house, gardening, cooking, automobile maintenance, martial arts and shooting. I love spending time with my loving wife, Catherine, our children and grandchildren, and our dog, Brooklyn. We love to travel, go shopping and just hang out together. My wife is a psychologist with a private practice.
