My gender: Male
Where I practice
I grew up in the Tampa Bay area and still call it home. I found my calling to medicine during my undergraduate studies at Emory University in Atlanta. As an interventional pain management physician, I perform state-of-the-art procedures to provide pain relief to people suffering from many debilitating conditions. I find my work incredibly rewarding. My wife and I enjoy a vibrant life with our young son, and we love spending time outdoors. My passions are running, grilling and cheering on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
About my practice
I am the third physician to join the Pain Management Department at Kaiser Permanente in Georgia. Our department treats a variety of pain conditions, focusing on the use of highly specialized X-ray guided procedures to restore function and regain quality of life. Our comprehensive approach aims to help diagnose and treat pain, often referred to as the "Fifth Vital Sign."
How I thrive
For me, almost every weekday morning starts with a pre-dawn, five-mile run. It helps me wake up, think about life and enjoy the outdoors. When it is over, I am energized and ready to take on whatever the day may bring me. Time with family and close friends is important to me. Whether it is reading my son a bedtime story, enjoying a favorite TV episode with my wife or immersing myself in wings and football with my buddies, it all helps me thrive.
