We do the least invasive most effective surgery we can do. If not having surgery is to your advantage, we will tell you. If another surgeon is more qualified to do a particular surgery we will let you know.
I grew up in Mesa, Arizona. I was an Eagle scout at age 17. I served a mission in Chile Concepcion from 1983-1984. I married Kathy Ann Gray and have been married for 30 years. We have 5 biological children and 2 adopted from an orphanage in Vladivostok Russia. I graduated from BYU in 1987 and attended medical school at University of Texas medical school at Houston from 1988-1992. Then I did a residency at Maricopa Medical Center from 1992-1997. I taught other residents from 1997-2001 at the same institution. Next I went into private practice from 2001 until the present. I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, camping, and occasional travel. Surgery was what I always wanted to do since having my own appendix removed when I was 16. I love diseases that have cures and immediate results and enjoy patients getting their lives back to normal.
