From the Doctor

I am a native Midwesterner who quickly fell in love with North Florida. Prior to relocating to Jacksonville, I spent my initial career as a clinical associate in Tallahassee and as a clinical assistant professor at Florida State University. My wife and I and our four kids enjoy biking and sail kayaking and other outdoor adventures that the area has to offer.

There is no greater honor than guiding a patient through the often-complex realm of medicine. With each passing day, our wealth of knowledge of the human body and its ailments expands. Charting the best management course for a patient can be challenging, and my goal as the physician is to advise and advocate for them.
