I have always endeavored to treat my patients in the same manner that I would expect to be treated. Appointments are scheduled just for you with overlapping appointments minimized. I don’t like to sit in a waiting room, and I don’t think you should have to either. If you think my waiting room isn’t busy, that’s a good thing.

When I’m not caring for my patients, I like to spend time with my family. We enjoy skiing, tennis, hockey, soccer, hiking, boating, fishing and anything that we can do together. Our Portuguese Water Dog keeps us especially busy.
