From the Doctor:
I was born and raised in Florida and my wife and our family share a love of the outdoors, whether it’s spending time at the beach or boating. Before earning my medical degree, I studied exercise physiology and cardiac rehabilitation. I’m also a member of the American College of Sports Medicine.
My philosophy of care is to play an active role in my patients’ lives in order to provide genuine continuity of care and to apply my training to the patient and not the disease alone.
Giving back to my community is something that was instilled in me from an early age. During medical school, I was heavily involved in giving back to those less fortunate in the community, by volunteering at rescue missions, both in the U.S. and in the Caribbean. This, I believe, has made me a humble and compassionate physician. I look forward to providing excellent patient care to the Beaches community.
