I’ve resided in Jacksonville for more than 10 years after being transferred here as a Navy surgeon in 2008. Before being commissioned a naval officer, I served in the Army as a Special Forces medic. I had a very busy combat tour of duty in Iraq as a Navy surgeon. My wife and I share an energetic household with a daughter in college and three high-school age boys. We enjoy a wide range of activities, including college and professional sports, hunting and outdoor activities. Service through medical mission work both domestically and abroad is a priority in our family.
My philosophy of orthopedic care has always been to incorporate a thorough evaluation of the patient’s biomechanics and studies, educate the patients regarding their orthopedic diagnoses, and present a wide range of non-operative and operative treatment options. My goal is to partner with my patients to give them the best possible long-term functional outcome while respecting their needs and the needs of their families throughout the episode of care.
I have volunteered at the Sulzbacher Health Clinic, the Tim Tebow Foundation’s “Night to Shine” and supported the YoungLives program and The Women’s Board of Wolfson Children’s Hospital. I have also participated in medical mission trips to Guatemala and am fluent in Spanish.
