From the Doctor:
I enjoy the outdoors and sharing those experiences with my wife and son. We can often be found jogging, hiking or strolling along the beach or through the local wooded areas. I enjoy golf, exercise, fishing, hunting and other outdoor activities.
I believe in treating my patients the same way as I would my own family. I feel that educating patients about their condition and presenting them with options, including conservative care, is always best. I strive for the best outcomes, while doing my best to manage reasonable expectations with care.
