From the Doctor:
My family’s journey from Pittsburgh to Jacksonville began with our love of the outdoors and a desire to live on the coast. We enjoy the tropical climate so that we can go hiking, biking and swimming. In my free time I like to golf and spend time with my family.
My philosophy of care centers on educating patients so that they can help in the decision making process. This allows them to understand a care plan and take an interest in improving their own health. I believe there are many paths to the same goal and together we can form a good care plan.
I think it is important for everyone to give back to their community. We encourage our daughters to get involved in a global way of thinking.
