From the doctor

I am proud to serve the needs of the Northeast Florida community and practice out of Baptist Medical Center South. I believe that it is important to for the physician and the patient to make decisions together, including the decision for surgery. I focus on conservative treatments and prefer for my patients to try rehabilitation prior to deciding to undergo surgery.

My family and I live in Jacksonville and are pleased to be a part of the community
