Why did you decide to become a physician?
My grandfather was ill with cancer when I was in high school and he spent 3 months at the Mayo clinic. We used to go up to visit him and that began my interest in medicine.
What are your clinical areas of interest?
Office orthopedics, sports medicine and fitness.
What is your philosophy of patient care?
I think it works best if the primary physician and the patient work together to come up with a plan to address health issues and concerns.
How do you spend your free time? (family, hobbies, interests, volunteer activities, etc.)
I enjoy spending time with my family, attending children's sporting events, hunting and fishing.
