Personal Information

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. 

Community Involvement

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 also volunteer through a local church and our family supports charities such as Red Cross and Charity Water.

Unfortunately he is a very popular dr. As his patient for several years, it still takes 3-4 weeks to get in. People I have referred to him take much longer so move on.

He was very good about explaining what he was going to do and telling me what would come next if a certain technique did not work.
