My Passion for Healthcare

I knew from childhood I wanted to be a doctor. I even told my mom I wanted to be a "world famous, humble country doctor." I started college in 1975 with the intention of becoming an emergency physician. Along the way, I became an engineer instead, but I missed the personal interactions working as an engineer. I returned to medical school and eventually became a surgeon, my true life's work. I can't imagine being happy doing anything else.

My Clinical Focus

I think an informed patient is the person best able to make medical decisions. I spend time with my patients making sure they understand their problem, how it is diagnosed, and how surgery works to help them. I make certain they know what to expect during and after surgery, and that they can contact me directly anytime if they have questions. Surgery is not to be taken lightly, but having a procedure can also improve a patient's life. Spending time with my patients is my biggest clinical focus.
