Physician Profile


A childhood friend’s father was a physician, and I always admired him. I specialized in psychiatry because I found it interesting and felt that I had a strong ability to perceive and understand problems of a psychiatric nature. People are all unique and different. You may think you understand, but, if you don’t listen, you will make assumptions which are incorrect. My personal philosophy for treating patients is to always be respectful, listen, try to understand and try to help the patient in the best way that I can figure out. I am originally from Kansas City, Kansas, and came to this area to do locums tenens work at Woodridge Hospital. I have been working there ever since. This region has a rural and relaxed feel to it, which I find attractive. I have a wife and one son. My sister and two brothers still live in Kansas City along with many other relatives. Outside of work, I enjoy playing tennis, walking, watching movies and playing on my computer.
