I grew up in the Tampa Bay area and still call it home. I found my calling to medicine during my undergraduate studies at Emory University in Atlanta. As an interventional pain management physician, I perform state-of-the-art procedures to provide pain relief to people suffering from many debilitating conditions. I find my work incredibly rewarding. My wife and I enjoy a vibrant life with our young son, and we love spending time outdoors. My passions are running, grilling and cheering on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
I am the third physician to join the Pain Management Department at Kaiser Permanente in Georgia. Our department treats a variety of pain conditions, focusing on the use of highly specialized X-ray guided procedures to restore function and regain quality of life. Our comprehensive approach aims to help diagnose and treat pain, often referred to as the "Fifth Vital Sign."
For me, almost every weekday morning starts with a pre-dawn, five-mile run. It helps me wake up, think about life and enjoy the outdoors. When it is over, I am energized and ready to take on whatever the day may bring me. Time with family and close friends is important to me. Whether it is reading my son a bedtime story, enjoying a favorite TV episode with my wife or immersing myself in wings and football with my buddies, it all helps me thrive.
