I believe all patients deserve to be treated with respect. I take my time with my patients and make sure to answer all questions they might have. It's my policy to explain how a medicine works and why the medicine in an important part of their treatment plan. I encourage my patients to ask questions about both their medications and their medical conditions. My explanations are always clear and easy to understand without being condescending.
I went to undergraduate college at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY on a full academic scholarship. I attended the State University of New York School of Medicine, located in Buffalo, NY. (Yes, it snows a lot there. It was not uncommon for me to use my cross country skis to ski down roads that had not be plowed to class). I graduated in 1998. I did my residency at Fort Bragg Army Medical Center in North Carolina and my internship at Womack Army Medical Center in Fort Hood Texas. I did a tour in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 as a Field Physician before being honorably discharged. In 2004, I moved to Martinsburg, WV and have worked in the region for the last 13 years. This includes Primary Care Office, Urgent Care Offices, and a mix of Primary care and Urgent care.
