What brought you to Premier Health? 

The opportunity to lead a Bariatric Program and be a part of our region’s leading health care system. Premier Health and I have similar visions of achieving the highest quality care for our patients.  My wife and I were also impressed by everything that the greater Dayton area has to offer and felt this would be a wonderful community to raise our family.

Why did you choose medicine as a career? 

The desire for a challenge and the pursuit of excellence in my work. I always have looked up to physicians and genuinely find pleasure in taking care of and serving others.

Who are the people who influenced and/or mentored you? 

I have had the pleasure of building long-lasting friendships with many wonderful people from the societal ranks of janitors to physicians. I have always surrounded myself with people with personal disciplines and characteristics I admired regardless of their position in society and have been pleased to notice that I eventually adapted similar traits through their friendship and support.  I feel I am simply a mold of those I have looked up to and surrounded myself by. 

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I love traveling to and exploring National Parks.

Florida (Tampa Bay area) – my wife and I have a second home there.

Describe something (a thing, person, place, experience, etc.) for which you are especially thankful:
