Q&A

  • Why did you choose your specialty area?

    The decision to choose a surgical specialty was based solely on my preference of a challenging and difficult field that requires precision, anatomical understanding and rapid decision making. Specifically, general surgery, gives me the opportunity to evaluate and care for patients in a variety of settings including office based care, the ER, inpatient hospital care, and most importantly the operating room.

  • How do you spend your spare time?

    My spare time is limited due to the nature of my commitment to my profession. I find myself spending the remainder of this time with my family including my wife, daughter and our German Shepherd, Milo. As a family we enjoy international travel, visiting the ocean, and hiking. I also enjoy running.

  • #1 Health tip that you can offer:

    Listen to your body and provide it the appropriate nutritional fuel – if it is out of the ordinary seek out a medical professional.
