I look forward to being active outdoors and spending time with my family. My favorite activities include hiking, biking, running, pack-rafting, camping, skiing, Nordic skating, and soccer. Also, having grown up in New England, I enjoy watching any of the Boston sports teams.
I appreciate the wide breadth of medicine that Family Medicine encompasses, but I have particular interests in sports medicine and dermatology.
My high school motto: “Cui servire est regnare,” loosely translated from Latin, “For whom service is perfect freedom.”
My wife, Callie, and I have two young sons, Owen and Wesley, and a dog named Vince.
When did you realize that you wanted to become a Family Medicine doctor?
It was a combination of having been raised the son of a nurse and a surgeon, a longstanding interest in the sciences, and ultimately the understanding that high-quality Family Medicine stems from solid long term relationships with both individuals and families. Those are the key factors that drove my decision to become a family physician.
What do you want people to understand about the way you practice medicine?
The foundation of my approach to practice is in evidence-based medicine. As far as my practice style, I want my patients to take an active interest and role in improving and/or maintaining their health. I prefer to collaborate with my patients to be sure that their concerns are heard and addressed, and be certain that we are moving in a positive beneficial direction.
