I decided to become a doctor to help people, and every day I feel blessed to have that opportunity. I am grateful to many of my patients who have shared their lives with me during their most difficult times.
I chose my field because of my interest in the musculoskeletal system and biomechanical function of the human body. Rehabilitation and restoring patients' function is very gratifying.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and my three energetic children. Our family food of choice is sushi! My hobbies include guitar, karaoke, golf, snowboarding and cheering for our local sports teams.
In the Community
I enjoy being involved in the community. I volunteer to provide medical care at local sports events such as local high school football games and soccer tournaments. I am the current sports safety medical director for Safe Kids Eastside, a local organization with the goal of preventing injuries in children. I also volunteer through a local church. Our family also supports charities such as Red Cross and Charity Water.
