Exercise is the best medicine, for everyone young and old. My background in Family Medicine and specialty training in Sports Medicine allows me to understand the needs of my patients and allows me to partner with them not just for their injuries, but also for improving their overall health and wellness. I consider it a privilege to assist my patients in realizing their full potential in everything they do on and off the playing field.
In my free time I enjoy running, yoga, tennis, cooking and spending time with my daughters.
