About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I have always wanted to be a surgeon from the time I was a small child. The ability to help someone who is suffering has always been the driving force behind my decision to enter medicine.


What I want my patients to know about me:

I have a caring and compassionate nature. I am skilled in the practice of general surgery, and I have had training in both England and the United States.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy playing golf. I spend a lot of my free time as the President of the York County Medical Foundation supporting charitable organizations locally and abroad. I organize medical mission trips to provide free surgical care in some of the most underdeveloped countries of the world.
