What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
As a child, about age 11, my father had a heart attack and I had wanted to help heal him.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
This is no other specialty where you can help bring a newborn to the world, perform surgery and provide primary care. That is truly rewarding.
How do you connect with your patients?
You must be humble, everyone has different experiences in life, from struggles, pain, fear of the unknown and joy. Speaking in layman's terms, and providing visual aids and common analogies helps bridge difficult to understand medical concepts to an understanding.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
I'm an outdoorsmen. I like to build and fix things. A do-it-yourself-er. I enjoy golf and skiing.
What is your advice for your patients?
When you are in good health, value it, nourish it so it can grow. Any signs of ailment, especially when picked up early try to rectify it, preventative medicine works.
