About Me

From excision of simple skin lesions to complicated cancer cases, my scope of practice includes managing a broad range of diseases. In addition to the surgical management of disease, my specific osteopathic training places an emphasis on the "whole person" philosophy. My focus is on building an individualized approach by providing evidence-based treatment plans that fit my patient's personal needs and circumstance. I do my best to provide such care with open and honest communication in order to create a strong foundation for our doctor-patient relationship. When I am away from work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children. I feel honored to have been offered the opportunity to return to the area and settle in North Carolina after my years of medical training and serving in the US Air Force.
