I grew up in a small town in upstate New York along the Hudson River, and ended up trading my snow shovel for sunshine after high school. I headed to Loyola University in New Orleans for my undergraduate degree in Finance, and then later onto Arizona State University in Phoenix for my MBA.
I have worked as a Financial Analyst for a Fortune 500 company, Project Manager for a non-profit institute, and ran a family business (plant nursery) with 45 employees.
While working at a cancer research institute I made the decision to change careers and go back to school to become a physician. After graduating from the University of Louisville School of Medicine I completed my training in Family Medicine in Columbia, South Carolina.
I chose the specialty of Family Medicine because of the wide spectrum of illnesses that I can treat. As Family Medicine physicians we are trained to treat newborns, pediatrics, women's health, adult chronic disease and geriatrics.
During my training I studied different practice models and chose to open a DPC practice because I believe that it provides the best opportunity to truly connect with patients. As a former business owner I understand that providing quality customer service requires time. Another huge positive of being a DPC practice is that I can save patients money on medications and labs .
When I am away from the office, I enjoy playing golf, running and gardening. I also love spending time with my wife, Rebecca, our two young children, John Michael and Aly Claire and our rescue dog, Roux.
