My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My primary care practice provides highly personalized medical care and attention, with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. Family medicine prides itself on specializing in the patient over organ systems and body parts. I work hard each day to help my patients get optimal advice and care. My affiliation with MDVIP gives me an added partner that can expand the scope of resources to assure patient care is of high value.

As an Army brat, I believe in leading from the front. This means that I practice what I preach. This tends to make recommendations believable and attainable. Medical plans always involve patient goals of care alongside recommended practices.

I am board certified in family medicine with certificates of additional qualification in sleep medicine, hospice and palliative care. I enjoy sports medicine as an offshoot of my years of competitive soccer coaching.

I am affiliated with Providence Hospital downtown and northeast, Prisma Baptist Medical Center, Columbia and Prisma Richland Memorial hospitals. My medical interests are wellness, prevention and sports medicine. This allows my patients to enjoy better health. My palliative care background affords my chronically ill patients better quality of life in their sunset years.

My practice serves Richland, Lexington, Kershaw and Fairfield counties and the surrounding area.
