From the Doctor:
I was born and raised in Jacksonville and majored in biology at the University of North Florida before attending a four-year osteopathic medical college in Chicago. I’m a former chief resident and a former hospital department chairman. My wife and I decided to move back to Jacksonville-where we have many great friends and family members, and, from a professional standpoint, because I wanted to practice medicine in the community that I grew up in and have come to love.
When I talk to medical students, they always ask me how did I pick my specialty? The short answer is the specialty picks you, not vice versa. Family medicine fit my personality perfectly. I have to know a little bit about everything. I really enjoy knowing that I can take care of about 95 percent of the medical problems that walk through the door. And I get to establish long-lasting relationships with people.
My wife and I have three children, two boys and a girl. We are very involved in our local church and I enjoy spending time with my family and coaching our son’s baseball and soccer teams. I also enjoy movies, books, and working out. I have become an avid cyclist who takes part in group rides on weekends.
