About Me

My wife and I are originally from the Atlanta area and enjoy hiking and kayaking. While attending medical school, I worked as a certified personal trainer at two different fitness centers.

My philosophy of care is centered on a patient’s knowledge of their disease process. I always make a point of asking patients if they understand their diagnoses because when patients grasp what is happening to them they are more likely to participate in their health care plan. I believe this can result in better adherence to their therapies and healthier decisions.

I have volunteered at public health clinics in Baltimore and Augusta, Ga., and served as an Advanced Cardiac Life Support simulation training instructor.
