WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a physician assistant who works in orthopaedics. I mainly see patients with hand injuries, hand pain, elbow and shoulder injuries. However, I’ve been a physician assistant for over twenty years, and during that time, I’ve also treated many patients with more general orthopaedic issues. I am a pretty low-key person who prefers to listen to patients during visits. Then, I like to confirm my initial diagnosis with any tests or x-rays and work with the patient to come up with a treatment plan. I worked in a hospital setting where physician assistants had a huge role, and my experience there inspired me to pursue my career path. While I was in physician assistant school, I had a mentor who specialized in orthopaedics. I found that I enjoyed the specialty too and haven’t looked back since. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family being, active outdoors and playing sports.
