WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

When I was a boy, I dreamed of becoming a simple country doctor. Although today I am not so much "in the country", that kind of doctor is who I am at heart. I enjoy the combination of the breadth of family medicine with the depth of the relationships the field allows me to form with patients of all ages and from all walks of life. I am particularly interested in cardiovascular disease prevention and helping patients manage hypertension (high blood pressure). Men's health is another area of interest, and I try to role model a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly and eating a healthful diet. My research focuses on hypertension, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and obesity prevention. I enjoy traveling and taking time to appreciate the beauty and wonder around us.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I study high blood pressure, and in my research projects, we often use methods to measure blood pressure outside the office setting. One such method is ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, in which the patient or participant wears a monitor for 24 hours. With this technique, we gain a much better understanding of a person's blood pressure pattern, including blood pressure during sleep and during work.
