From the doctor

I'm constantly amazed by children's ability to learn, adapt and heal, and this amazement hasn't faded now that I'm raising three children of my own. In fact, my children have helped me to better understand the importance of being caring, kind and personable when working with young patients.

Outside of the office, I serve on the Wolfson Children's Hospital Medical Board and the Baptist Primary Care Board. I supplement my medical training by learning more about family-centered care.

My wife and I moved to Jacksonville in 2001 and we love the weather, restaurants, beaches and the professional sports here. I also enjoy running, swimming, kayaking and working in the yard.
