About Me

Medical Director, Vascular Surgery Program, Memorial Hospital West 

I specialize in lower extremity revascularization, a procedure that is used to restore blood flow to the lower half of the body and prevent the need for leg amputations. This procedure and other vascular procedures help patients who have blocked arteries, are on dialysis, or have other serious conditions that affect blood flow.

I have always been fascinated with medicine and knew at an early age that I wanted to pursue a career as a physician. I enjoy the challenge of fixing complex vascular systems, and helping patients to heal and gain an improved quality of life.

When I am a patient visiting another doctor, I want to feel that the doctor took the time to get to know me and really listened to my concerns. Therefore, this is how I treat my patients. At every appointment, I take the time to listen to what is ailing them and work to find the treatment option that best suits their needs.

Before working in a civilian hospital, I had the honor of serving in the U.S. military as a physician. I rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel before being honorably discharged in 2003.
