Physician Q & A
Why did you decide to become a physician?
In high school I worked with a local surgeon in his office and I saw first hand how much a physician can help a person with a debilitating disease or deformity.
What are your clinical areas of interest?
I specialize in the lower extremity but I enjoy Total Ankle Replacements and also large deformities of the foot or ankle. I also enjoy delicate procedures such as bunions that take acute precision to get the procedure perfect.
What is your philosophy of patient care?
I believe that listening to a patient will help to establish a diagnosis more than anything else.
How do you spend your free time? (family, hobbies, interests, volunteer activities, etc.)
I enjoy playing sports and spending time with my two children. Some say golf is not a sport but I enjoy playing it as well.
Provide an interesting anecdote about you.
I enjoy maintaining 60 acres of land I own which can involve anything from mowing the fields, cutting down trees, fixing a tractor or feeding the chickens.
