Best travel place was Algiers Algeria. The cultural differences were few and the similarities many. A people looking to improve the way of life for themselves and their children.
Running: Old habits die hard. I still jog instead of running to maintain physical fitness. Leisure I love reading. My book collection is very eclectic from Scientific journals to Science Fiction. Reading allows me to look beyond the mundane, envision many possibilities, and select a path that leads me to my goals.
I enjoy playing with my grandson and teaching him how to be a good person and team player. I enjoy spending time with family and friends discussing world events and the current political climate. I enjoy reading especially military history and educational social literature. I love listening to jazz and have a fantastic collection of vinyl. I also enjoy spending time by myself learning more about who I am and how I fit in a world that is constantly changing. My goal is always to be a better version of myself.
My passion in medicine is surgery. It is my first love because it allows me to positively influence health outcomes proactively. I believe in a holistic approach to medicine. Healing is not just giving medications. It is also about understanding the totality of the patients I care for. Many non-medical factors contribute to the healing or non-healing process. You need to listen fully to what your patient’s complaint is both the verbal and non-verbal to provide the appropriate treatment.
What I would like to do, in the near future, is to provide facial cosmetic medicine/treatment to my patients. Many individuals want to look a little younger, take the edge off their chronic tired look, to feel rejuvenated. Facial aesthetics can make this happen.
Why do I enjoy practicing at Marque? The staff! I work with a fantastic group of professional people who believe as I do - provide the best care to all the patients we treat.
