Physician Profile


Although I’m from Beaver, Pennsylvania, we moved to Tennessee to be near family who had relocated here. The sensible pace of life, beautiful seasons and strong family values of all the people we met here were the things that most attracted us to this region. Family medicine lets me interact with people of all ages and from all situations, allowing me to be on the front line of improving health. I also enjoy helping people navigate the complex medical system to get the care they need. By listening, I understand a patient’s priorities, and from there we can build a plan together. My wife, Michelle, and I have four young children. I love to be outside with my kids either working in the garden or riding bikes around town. I play the organ for Sunday services and organize meals and service projects for local missionaries.
