WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a regional medical director for Duke Urgent Care and am board-certified in both family medicine and undersea and hyperbaric medicine. I split my time between clinical practice and administrative responsibilities, and I have a passion for improving health care delivery to optimize patient access, education and outcomes. Prior to joining the Duke medical staff, I was the chief medical officer and CEO of Divers Alert Network and an internationally recognized expert on diving injuries, accidents and medical treatment. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, and diving the warm waters of the world. I've been a PADI SCUBA instructor for more than 25 years. I also enjoy reading Clive Cussler novels, cooking, and golfing, when time permits. I live in Durham with my wife, Kim. We have three children, a grandson, and a crazy Jack Russell terrier.
