From the Doctor

I have lived all over the United States, including both coasts. I am excited to enjoy everything that Jacksonville and Northeast Florida has to offer. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors and running.

My philosophy of care is to understand the goals and concerns of my patients, so that together we can develop an individualized treatment plan that maximizes the chances of cure and reduces the side-effects resulting from a prior disease.

I think it is important to give back to the community, and I look forward to engaging in volunteering activities in Jacksonville.
