From the Doctor:
My philosophy of care is simple: I enjoy helping others. In addition to serving as a volunteer for the health department, I donate time to Angel Flight, a non-profit organization which arranges free air transportation for people with medical needs.
In order to provide quality care, I know it's important to foster relationships with the patients I treat. As a father and a grandfather, I feel I can relate well to the families I interact with daily.
My daughter gave birth to my first grandson in June 2010, and my son hopes to pursue a career in the medical field. In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy flying and RVing.
