Why did you choose a career in Family Medicine?
I chose a career in Family Medicine because it’s such a broad, diverse field and because of the relationships I form with my patients.

What are some of your fondest memories of medical school?
Some of my fondest memories in medical school include seeing patients in a rural primary care office and my three-month stint at an FQHC seeing primary care patients, psych patients and pediatrics.

What drew you to pursue the Family Medicine residency program with NGMC?
I chose Northeast Georgia Medical Center because of the good reputation the health care system has and the integrated system our Family Medicine clinic has. Coming here was an easy choice so we can be near my wife’s family.

What were your favorite clubs/activities in high school?
I competed in cross country and track at the D2 level in college. I also played multiple instruments and performed from time to time.

What are your hobbies?
I enjoy staying active with strength training, yoga, walking with my wife and dogs, and gardening.

Do you have a special interest in the field of Family Medicine?
I especially enjoy treating musculoskeletal issues with osteopathic manipulative medicine, type 2 diabetes and behavioral health.

What is the strangest diagnosis you ever encountered?
The most unique diagnosis I came across was acquired amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia. There have been very few cases since it was first identified.
