Community activities

Over the years, I have had to privilege to participate in the following activities: National Ski Patrol, Lion's Club, Local Fire/Rescue departments and the Civil Air Patrol.

My practice is in the same community where my family and I live. So, it is very important that I remain active in the community. I've known some of my patients for years before they visited my office.

I have coached hockey and soccer programs for the twelve years, and my practice provides 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. We expanded the scope of our practice to include specialized care for the elderly and to change our practice's hours to facilitate evening care.

We also like to give back to a community that has given so much to us.
