In my practice, I give top priority to the physician–patient relationship and patient education. My goal is to build trust with my patients so they feel comfortable with me as their surgeon. I want to ensure people understand their diagnosis, as well as the necessary steps for the road to recovery.
Among my many interests, I am proud to serve as the Diversity Officer for the Office of Medical Student Inclusion & Enrichment Programs. Serving as team physician for the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards was an exciting opportunity. I have a strong appreciation for fine arts and jazz, and enjoy spending time with my lovely wife and children.
