I consider it a privilege to be a physician. I was on active duty in the Air Force when the opportunity to enter medical school occurred. With my undergraduate degree from a science and engineering school, I naturally gravitated to radiology, with the more technical aspects of patient care. Radiology continues to be my work and hobby. Despite my technical training, I still consider it “magic” to be able to see inside people.I live in Roswell with my wife, and have four children and grandchildren on both coasts.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
Our radiology department at Kaiser Permanente is always growing and improving. We interact with almost every other department in delivering patient care.Kaiser Permanente is very involved in preventative medicine, and to that end, our department is very involved in screening for early problems. This is especially true in breast health, which is one of my personal interests.I have personally been, and continue to be, involved with all aspects of department administration, having served as service chief. I helped implement many of our early computer projects. Our department is currently internalizing and updating many areas including digital imaging, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and interventional radiology, to name a few.
Cómo vivo bien
I take the Kaiser Permanente philosophy of thrive to heart, literally. Besides regular exercise and attention to eating (Weight Watchers® lifetime member), I enjoy being outdoors as often as possible with hiking and scuba diving. My wife and I also take dance lessons, which provide an enjoyable and social form of exercise.
