From the Doctor:
I am a Jacksonville native. I graduated from Terry Parker High School and attended the University of Florida for both undergraduate studies and medical school, go Gators! After completing my service with the United States Air Force, I was fortunate to be able to return to practice in my hometown. When not taking care of patients, I am usually spending time with my two sons. We enjoy fishing, camping and participating in activities with the Boys Scouts of America.
My philosophy of care centers on the patient as an individual. Patients with cancer are not statics; they are human beings with unique lives and goals. I see myself as a guide that has the ability and responsibility to assist each patient under my care on their own individual cancer journey.
I strongly believe in the Jacksonville community and the Baptist Health system and have helped serve the Baptist Health Foundation. I have enjoyed participation in Rotary and I take an active role in mentoring youth through the Boy Scouts of America.
