About me

I was the fourth of five children born in Pittsburgh, Pa. My mother was the secretary for a local doctor's office, which made me interested in medicine at a very early age. I received my undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Pittsburgh. I completed my residency at St. Margaret's Family Practice in Pittsburgh and was assistant chief resident my final year. I practiced for five years in the Air Force, as I attended medical school on a military scholarship, and was stationed in Arkansas and Panama. I learned a great deal in those years, including how to speak Spanish. I then returned to practice family medicine in Pittsburgh for twelve years. I moved to Cleveland, Ga., where I practiced for ten years, and have now relocated to Conyers to continue to practice medicine with Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

I have now been practicing medicine for over 30 years. Since I began my career, the medical field has changed tremendously, but I still feel good about what I do. I have always tried to focus on the patient to make sure that they feel they are being listened to and cared for properly. I have enjoyed the diversity of family medicine. It is hard sometimes to be all things to all people, but the variety of patients and conditions I see keeps things interesting. I feel that I have always enjoyed practicing family medicine more than limiting myself to a narrower specialty.

How I thrive

Like most people, work takes up a lot of my time, but I try to thrive through golf, walking, exercise and gardening. I always feel there is nothing as healthy or delicious as vegetables that are fresh from the garden. I spend most weekends with the barbeque and have become pretty versatile on it. I enjoy outings with my youngest son through volunteering with the Boy Scouts and going camping, hiking and bicycling on the Silver Comet Trail.
