He’s an avid sports fan, and spends his free time on outdoor activities and travel.
What is your approach to patient care?
“Having a good patient/provider relationship is important to me. That means being able to listen to the patient and to communicate effectively so they have a full understanding of the care they are receiving when they leave. The patient always comes first and I hope to provide a good experience for everyone that walks through our doors.”
