When I come to work, every day is different, and I like that. The faces stay the same, though, and I like that, too. The long-term relationship you and I develop is one of the reasons I got into family medicine. One of the best things about my job is getting to help you through difficult times. I especially enjoy caring for patients with psychiatric issues, and I have a knack for managing chronic challenges like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Away from work, I like to hunt, and I raise my own hunting buddies — golden retrievers.
