How do you want to make an impact at Greater Regional Health?
Meeting the needs of the patients is the foundation of making GRH successful. As a primary care provider I am on the front line of interacting with the public. I must be diligent to meet their expectations. At the same time I must work in cooperation with the ancillary providers and administrative staff in order to assure guidelines and regulations are fulfilled.
What is your philosophy statement?
To be a primary care physician who remains diligent at being a competent, compassionate provider who has been entrusted with the care of those seeking healthcare.
What made you want to be in the medical field?
As a high schooler and college student the practice of medicine appealed to me as a great way to mix science with working with people.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Family, travel, yard work and church related service.
