From the Doctor:
I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida and came from a close, loving family with two sisters and one brother. My wife Christy and I have two daughters, Allison and Emily whom love spending time outdoors. In our free time we enjoy visiting new places, swimming and bicycling together.
My philosophy of care is to listen to my patients and work cooperatively with them to improve health and reduce illnesses and their complications. I use evidence-based information to provide both preventive health maintenance as well as disease-related care. Your visit will result in a personalized care plan developed with your needs and lifestyle in mind.
I feel it is important to give back when possible. My family and I support The United Way, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and I ride in the Multiple Sclerosis Bike ride (MS150). Our family is active in our church and I am a member of the Knights of Columbus.
