About Me

I am originally from Hollywood, Florida, and I am excited about the opportunity to become part of the community here in Jacksonville. My wife and I have two children, and we enjoy biking, cooking and playing tennis together. We also enjoy watching sporting events together.

My philosophy of care is to provide excellent, patient-centered care with a focus on education. With each unique issue, it is important to keep in mind that I am treating a unique person. I want to be on the same page with my patients, and my goal is to cross the disease-free finish line together, every step of the way.
