Special interests
Meeting the needs of you and your entire family.

I grew up in Dayton, Ohio, number four of nine siblings in a busy house. I left town for college, as did most of the kids, following older brothers to The United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. After getting a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, I returned to Dayton for medical school at Wright State University. Always planning to a family physician, I continued Air Force training in a family medicine residency in Ft. Worth, Texas. I served in the Air Force for twelve years, helping patients in Texas, Alaska, Washington and Colorado along the way. I left the Air Force and came to Oregon, to Salem Clinic, in 2001 with my wife and three children; I have called the Pacific Northwest home ever since!

Family Medicine has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I never wanted to specialize in anything else. My philosophy is simple: I want to help every patient be as healthy as they want to be, and can be, through a team effort. I like to build a relationship with each patient and family so we can work together on your health goals.

My own family is very special to me. I have an amazing and supportive wife, three beautiful children and two loving dogs. I enjoy jogging, tennis, pickleball fishing, and playing guitar when not saving lives and stamping out disease at the office!
