  • Favorite Quote

  • Family

    My wife, Dr. Julie Robinson, and I have a son and a daughter.

  • When did you realize that you wanted to become a Family Medicine doctor?

    It was more of a process than a moment. Obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure are very common on both sides of my family. I learned in my twenties that I could both control these risks, and manage stress effectively, with outdoor physical activities and the right food choices. A career in medicine was a way for me to promote that while helping others.

  • What do you want people to understand about the way you practice medicine?

    Healthy food, regular exercise, and quality sleep are still the best forms of medicine.
