From the Doctor:
As a native Floridian and graduate of the University Florida College of Medicine, it was a primary goal of mine to return home to contribute to the local medical and orthopedic community. With my wife, Leslie, from Atlanta in tow, we have grown deep roots in the greater Jacksonville area by adding a son and a daughter to our family. When I am not working, I enjoy writing, running, snowboarding, and playing sports with my kids.
I take an individualized and compassionate approach when caring for my patients. Modern day orthopedics requires that the surgeon demonstrates comprehensive skills regarding the administration of fiscally responsible, quality medical care. Communication and education are of utmost importance to provide my patients the ability to make informed decisions regarding medical or surgical treatment of an orthopedic problem. I believe that the fundamental relationship between the surgeon and the patient be based on trust, mutual understanding, and transparency. I believe in meeting patients' needs through thorough evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle.
I volunteer in the orthopedic community locally, regionally, and nationally through instruction and committee membership. Even more enjoyable is sharing my time with children as their baseball coach. As a member of the Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute and Baptist family, I look forward to providing my patients the best orthopedic care in the city and northeast Florida.
