About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

I always knew I wanted to help people and had an early love for First Aid as a Boy Scout.  This drive led me to become a volunteer EMT with my local ambulance corps through high school and college.  Once in medical school, I discovered orthopedic surgery and knew it was the field for me. 

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

The structure and anatomy of the human body is absolutely fascinating.  Orthopedic trauma is a specialty where no two cases are the same and I know I can greatly help my patients in their time of need.

How do you connect with your patients?

Listening is absolutely paramount.  That way, I can get to know you best and advise on the optimal course of treatment for you. 

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

Anything outdoors or on the water - hiking, camping, SCUBA diving and freediving, obstacle course racing, like the Tough Mudder and Spartan Race. 

What is your advice for your patients?

Never stop moving.  People are meant to be up, walking around and doing the activities they love.
