Meet The Doctor

What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?

An attentive and interested ear for their symptoms and needs.

What is the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship and why?

Communication and understanding. As one of the last few medical school classes to hear Tinsley Harrison at the University of Alabama (author of the textbook of medicine), I learned that if you listen carefully to a patient you will often get the diagnoses or know where best to start searching for the source of the problems.

What hobbies or activities do you enjoy when you're not working?

I enjoy reading.

What about your line of work do you find the most rewarding and why?

I enjoy the wide variety of medical problems I see as adult (age 18 up) primary care physician.
