What is your philosophy of care?

My philosophy of care is to put myself in the patients’ shoes.  I want to connect with them and understand them.

Why did you become a doctor?

I wanted a career that would provide me with unlimited opportunities.  My dad was a doctor, so I knew going into Medical School would put me on a track for a meaningful career that could take me anywhere in the world.

Tell us about your team and what makes them so exceptional! What is special about the way your team interacts with patients?

I built my practice around having compassion for patients, and I think it made a difference in how my team around me works and cares for our patients.

What is the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship, and why?

Trust.  It is important to me that patients trust me.  I take the time to get to know them and understand their lifestyle to care for them.

What are your favorite hobbies or activities when you’re not working?

Growing up I was an active hunter and fisherman.  I have an english setter who keeps me busy and has gotten me back outside doing the things I love again.

Tell us about your family.

I am happily married; together we have five children: four girls and one boy.
