I have been a board-certified Family Practice physician for almost 18 years now, and my passion to heal and help others has only become stronger over the years. When I sit with a patient, I truly listen, and I treat everyone with the dignity and respect we all deserve. My patient panel grows the old fashion way, by word-of-mouth, because my patients tell their friends and families about my genuine compassion, my clinical skills, and my ability to explain any ailment in a clear, understandable way. Most importantly, my patients appreciate how I empower them to be the driver in their path to Wellness – I am only their guide, ready to share my knowledge and advice.
Fun Facts about me: I have had several interesting jobs in my life: from being a stock boy in a liquor store, to roofing and landscaping, to being a waiter in a pub, a life coach, a U.S. Marine working in the intelligence field, a U.S. Naval officer, and a family physician – to name a few.
In early 2018, I had no children. By the end of 2020, I had 5 children and a fiancée, and I love my new instant family.
My 23-and-Me genetics report shows that I am half Native American, and I never knew that!
