His love of reading includes newspaper, fiction, non-fiction and biographies. He’s also in the process of refurbishing an old Lionel train set, complete with a landscape of roads, mountains and building, which is an activity his grandchildren enjoy as much as he does.
What led you to a career in podiatry?
“From my youngest age I always wanted to be a physician. My dad was a podiatrist, and I had an uncle who was a general practitioner. I also considered pediatrics. I spent time with both my uncle and a pediatrician, and I realized that what they were doing didn’t fit into my comfort level. So I started looking more at what my father was doing and realized that in podiatry and orthopaedics, what we do is more elective. We can choose when we’re going to do elective surgery. I liked the ability to have more choice.”
If you weren’t a physician, what would you be doing?
“If I weren’t a physician, I might be a history professor, teaching at the college level. I enjoy reading history - the civil war, world war II, the revolutionary war - the majority of the books I read are historical books.”
