What brought you to Premier Health? 

An opportunity to join a great group of dedicated cardiologists to help grow care for and meet the needs of peripheral vascular disease patients, and the desire to be relatively close to family in Michigan.

Why did you choose medicine as a career? 

I vividly recall my 6th-grade school presentation on being a cardiologist, saving patients suffering from heart attacks. I was always fascinated by the cardiovascular system and wanting to be a heart doctor as far back as I can remember.

My great interest in vascular medicine and critical limb ischemia treatment developed during cardiology fellowship training. I was astounded by the high amputation rates and adverse cardiovascular outcomes of patients with advanced peripheral arterial disease and critical limb ischemia. This is now my sub-specialty area of interest.

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

My father with his incredible work ethic and integrity, and my mother with her tremendous patience and compassion. My wife, with her kind nature and love. My children, with their beautiful curious spirit and creative energy. My siblings, with their support and loyalty, and my teachers and mentors for their devotion and commitment throughout my training. I would not be the person I am today without these influential people in my life.
