From the Doctor:
After a 10-year career in real estate, I was able to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a doctor in 1998. I spent nearly a decade in private practice in my home state of Georgia and served a five-year period teaching and supervising medical school residents in Atlanta.
Preventing the onset of disease is the best treatment plan for my patients. I believe medical care is a relationship where provider and patient work together for optimal physical, emotional and spiritual health.
My church family and giving back to my community and the world through mission work is very important to me, as are my six grandchildren.
