About Me

I thrive on developing close relationships with my patients. I believe it is the job of the primary care doctors to educate, provide appropriate care, and work as a team toward each person's overall health and well-being.

My wife and I are proud parents of twin boys. My wife is a neurologist, so you could say medicine runs in our family. We moved to Jacksonville in August 2009, but I know the area well because I went to high school here.

For recreation, I enjoy water sports, and in the cooler months I enjoy heading north for a little snow skiing. Exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle!
