Caring for patients is a sacred responsibility and incredible privilege. Remaining worthy of this privilege requires a commitment to deliver cutting-edge, evidence-based care, and a dedication to procedural excellence. Equally important is developing a relationship with a patient and working to understand his or her individual needs. Part of care delivery is ensuring that a patient understands his or her disease, treatment options, and, hopefully, providing a sense of reassurance.

I am married to a brilliant neurologist in this health system, Dr. Ashley Whyte-Rayson. We have three young children, including identical twins. I enjoy cycling, fishing, hiking, hunting and tennis.
