From the Doctor

I've lived in Puerto Rico, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina and Missouri, and have called Jacksonville home since 1995. I chose family practice because I want to improve the quality of care that each of my patients receives.

At Baptist Primary Care in Regency, we have a dynamic office geared toward prevention. I work as a team with my nurse and medical assistant to provide my patients with the knowledge they need to treat their individual health conditions.

My wife and I have four children. Outside of the office, I remain active in my Catholic church, and I enjoy biking, kayaking and traveling.
