Orthopedic Hand Surgery | Male | 49 years old

"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence." Vince Lombardi Q. What do you like best about working with your patients? People really respect our practice and what we have to offer. I enjoy learning about them personally and enjoy the challenge of restoring function so that they may be able to return to the level of activity that they crave. Q. What do you like best about working for OAA? Without question, the employees at OAA are top notch and are the true "wizards" behind the scenes that make our organization top notch. They all believe in what we do as physicians and their support is invaluable. I am also very honored and proud to have been elected president of the best orthopaedic organization in the Lehigh Valley. I never imagined that, 5 years into coming to OAA, that my partners would look to me to guide us through the uncertain future of medicine in the aftermath of healthcare reform. It is a great responsibility that I take very seriously, where failure is not an option. Q. How do you apply your experience as an orthopaedic surgeon and a physician to the rest of your life? A. I have dedicated my life to what I do. I truly believe that there is no other specialty in medicine where the physicians are completely and literally thrilled doing what they do. Completing a challenging case is like scoring a touchdown, making a goal, hitting a home run….. Attention to detail is critical.Read more
