My mission is to provide high quality medical care in a very personalized manner to each of my patients. I will strive to better my knowledge of medicine each day in order to continue to deliver the elite level of care that is expected of me from my patients. I also have a special interest in management of DMII and thyroid disorders, as well as HTN.
I started my medical career in 1988 and worked as a Clinical Pharmacist for one year at Mobile Infirmary in Mobile, AL. I had previously decided to become a physician while in Pharmacy School at Auburn University, so after a year of working as a Clinical Pharmacist, I reentered the world of academia at The University of Alabama School of Medicine (UASOM) at Birmingham, AL. I graduated from there in 1993, and then completed my residency in Family Medicine though the UASOM at there Huntsville Hospital campus. Following completion of residency I relocated back to Middle Tennessee and I have been in practice in the Spring Hill / Thompson Station area for the last 20 years. I was in Family Health Group for nearly 18 years in Spring Hill, TN and greatly enjoyed the relationships I developed with patients and families by having the privilege to serve as their family physician. However during this rapidly evolving health care environment we all live in, I made the decision to move to Williamson Medical Group in late 2014, and have been there since.
I now have made the decision to join Saint Thomas Medical Partners and look forward to playing a part in developing this medical office into a state of the art, full comprehensive care family medical complex. I look forward to this new partnership with Saint Thomas Medical Partners, and I encourage my established patients, as well as any new patients, to please come and establish with us to experience nothing but the highest quality health care.
