"I like to empower my patients to be their own decision makers. We discuss risks, benefits, options, and alternatives. I want my patients to leave their visit knowing that they were listened to and have the best personalized care. Medicine is always changing. I am dedicated to staying up to date so that my patients have the most current knowledge.

It has always been a passion of mine to come back to the Copper Country to practice medicine. All too often physicians leave the area for other opportunities. It is important for patients to develop a long lasting relationship with their doctor and to know that they will be there for them in the future. Having grown up in the area I know what a great place it is to live and to raise a family. Portage Health has an excellent group of dedicated professionals and state of the art facilities. I am excited to be a part of it."
