Many people often ask me, why did you choose podiatry? What I've found over the years is that my answer hasn't changed but only grown into a more enthusiastic, in depth response. I chose podiatry after graduating from Denison University in Granville, OH. I was a pre-medical biology major and psychology minor looking into the medical field and not really finding my niche. It was when I looked further into other medical fields, that I discovered this wonderful profession. I was so pleasantly surprised at all the variety that encompasses this field. We get to spend time actually treating patients as well as be trained in the surgical realm so to me, that is the best of both worlds. My goal is to make every patient that chooses me as their physician to feel comfortable asking any and all questions as well as trusting in my expertise and training. I face every day with a smile and my goal is for you to walk out of the office feeling that you were treated in the best way possible. I like to explain my treatment philosophies to patients in ways that they will understand as well as giving them all options possible for their consideration. It is my firm belief that the patient should make decisions for their health, my goal is to provide them with my expert medical opinion and solutions. I also trust that all conservative options should be exhausted before surgical intervention is considered.
