I chose Family Medicine because its philosophy is to treat patients as people with health issues, not simply as “diseases that come to the clinic.” In addition to treating illness, I focus on helping people stay healthy, as well as avoid complications of their diseases. I enjoy rural medicine because it allows me to also know my patients as members of the community. My wife and I enjoy the rural lifestyle and believe Brady has been a good place to raise a family. It is professionally satisfying to provide care to a population that is typically under served. I strongly believe that rural areas such as Brady and the Heart of Texas deserve quality health care.

For nearly 20 years I have had the opportunity to work in various environments and across several communities allowing me to work with many types of patients. My experience has taught me how to deliver the care patients desire with the dignity and respect they deserve. As a specialist in Family Medicine, and most often someone’s first source for healthcare, I see and treat patients of all ages – from infants and children to adults and seniors.

Surgery can spark fear and anxiety for anyone, no matter how simple or complex a procedure can be. No matter what, I always approach my patients with understanding and care. From the initial consultation, through pre- and post-op appointments, I ensure they know what is happening and what can be expected every step of the way.

While I enjoy working with and treating patients of all ages, my passion is working in adult/geriatric preventative care.
