Community activities

Father of Five: Ryan, Robert, William, James and Lauren. Married: Ann Marie.

My practice is in the same community where my family and I live. I've known some of my patients for years before they visited my office.

I have coached youth sports and participated as a Scout Leader for many years, and my practice has provided volunteer medical services. These activities introduced us to many local families and young athletes in the community - this in turn allowed me to gain a better understanding of our community's medical needs.
