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.
