My greatest pleasure in practice is the relationships I have built with families over several decades in this community, and the joy of seeing patients of all ages, from babies born to parents just starting their family to college age patients I have known their whole lives. And to provide them with excellent medical care in a caring and family-centered environment with the help of a great team.
