Patient Care Philosophy
Ever since I could remember, there were only 2 jobs I wanted to do; I was either going to be a doctor, or I was going to be the first baseman for my hometown Milwaukee Brewers. When I never learned to hit a curveball, medicine became the only choice. I was raised by an internist and a nurse, and therefore medicine has been part of my life forever. When I discovered surgery in medical school it was immediately clear that it was how I wanted to care for patients. The ability to personally correct problems, offer comfort in difficult situations, and occasionally even save a life profoundly affected me, and remains a driving passion in my life.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our small Swiss Mountain Dog. While we love our new home in the Pacific Northwest, we are both stock holders and season ticket holders of our beloved Green Bay Packers, and our allegiance remains undeterred!
