Biography & Education

Biography
Many doctors have said over the years that the practice of medicine involves a lifetime of learning. Having been a doctor now for 27 years, I have found that I learn more from listening to my patients than probably any other source. Listening to patients' problems and taking time to carefully explain the diagnosis and treatment alternatives, are the combination that insures my patients get the excellent quality of care that they want and deserve.
Additional Information
