Call your doctor before leaving home if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in our community, visitor restrictions are in place for all Duke clinics and hospitals. For your safety and the safety of others, we recommend patients do not bring a visitor to Duke clinics, if at all possible. If a visitor must accompany a patient, only one individual over 12 years of age is allowed. Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms upon arrival. Individuals with flu-like symptoms are not allowed. View the complete list of Visitor Restrictions.

Effective immediately, Duke Health is prioritizing and rescheduling some non-emergent or non-critical surgeries, procedures, and appointments. Check our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) page for updates.

About Me

I’ve been in practice for over 20 years and specialize in foot and ankle conditions. My patients tend to have a variety of foot ailments, including bunions, arthritis, and toenail and skin problems. I also treat diabetic patients who are having issues with their feet as well as sports injuries. When I see a patient, I try to find out their treatment goals. Whether the patient wants to pursue therapy or surgery, I try to come up with a treatment plan that meets their needs. My mother influenced my decision to pursue podiatry. She worked for a podiatrist when I was entering high school, and I remember how much she enjoyed the work. There are many things I like about my work, but the most fulfilling aspect is that I can often provide instant relief to patients. In my spare time, I enjoy working in my yard, playing ice hockey and hiking.
