Why I chose a career in medicine: Our feet our are landing gear and carry us over 100,00 miles in a lifetime. As a podiatrist, a good number of our patient's walk out the door feeling better than when they walked in. It is a privilege and a calling to be able to help people walk better and help them enjoy life with less pain.
What patients can expect when they come to an appointment with me: Patients can expect to get a full evaluation of their problem as well as an examination of their lower extremity to ensure that there are no other issues that may not be apparent to them. My goal is to see each patient as a person and not just the foot or ankle problem that walks in the door. There are health issues that show up first in the foot so I look at the patient has a whole from head to toe to get a better full evaluation.
What do I do when I am not seeing patients: I enjoy staying active by running with my dog and working out. I enjoy spending time with my family and taking care of our 4 dogs. If there is any other spare time I enjoy reading.
