I am a native Floridian, born in DeLand. I went to the University of Florida for my undergraduate degree in Health Sciences. I attended the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (in Bradenton) for medical school. I did my internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I spent 7 years in a corporate medical practice, and saw how awful our current medical system had become, both for patients, and for physicians. That is why I decided to have my own practice. I believe that patients deserve better quality care.
