From the doctor
Pediatrics provides me with the opportunity to prevent diseases and help kids establish healthy habits early in life so they will last a lifetime. The basis of my practice is injury prevention, healthy diets, staying active, and early recognition and intervention of disease.
My wife and I have lived in Jacksonville since 1990, and we enjoy spending time with our three children and large, extended family. I love anything to do with college football and have a great time boating, water skiing, running, biking and restoring my 1996 Cobra Mustang.
I'm also involved with my Catholic Church, the YMCA, and the Northeast Florida Pediatric Society.
