From the Doctor:
As a native Floridian, I was naturally drawn back when the opportunity arose to complete my residency in Jacksonville. During my residency certain values were reinforced including compassion, understanding, teamwork, excellence and, “the needs of the patient come first.” I will always strive to apply those principles with every patient I see.
My approach has always been to listen carefully to each person’s needs and to help them understand their conditions. Forming a collaborative partnership in managing chronic medical conditions and in treating acute issues is essential in experiencing the best outcomes.
I enjoy living in Jacksonville. When not at work, I love spending time with my wife and boys, going to the beach, taking in nature trails or catching a Suns game. I also enjoy photography and usually have plenty of subjects to capture at home or out in my travels. I am also involved in my church and enjoy the opportunity of being a part of many young families' lives.
