About Me

I grew up in Durham, North Carolina. I always wanted to become a doctor. Medicine combines two things that I love: people and science. I am board-certified in family medicine and have been practicing urgent care medicine since 2011. I even served as medical director for a local urgent care center for five years. Trained as a primary care physician, I love the broad scope of urgent care medicine, along with the chance to perform procedures. I also love the challenge and variety of acute care needs and diagnoses. While medicine is challenging and patients are in need, I do try to connect with my patients and address their needs, but make them feel special at the same time. In my free time, I enjoy time with my wife and friends, exercising, and playing music as a hobby musician (guitar, bass, and drums).
