I try to focus on listening to what the patient is telling me, avoiding distractions, and keeping eye contact. I gain valuable information in having a conversation with them and feel I am better able to meet and understand their needs.

I decided to go into medicine because I have always desired to help people, preferably in a field that is mentally stimulating for me. Being a physician assistant fulfills these desires nicely for me.

Beyond caring for patients, I’m passionate about playing pickleball. I also love most all outdoor activities. I’m married with three boys and three dogs. I’m proud of my sons – one is working with robots, one is studying philosophy and one recently joined the marines. The dog’s focus is on squirrels, bunnies, and their next meal.
