I desired a career in Primary Care and Sports Medicine and the most logical profession was the DO profession with its Whole Person concept. After finishing my Family Medicine Residency and Sports Medicine Fellowship, I had the opportunity to serve as team doctor for the following:
Grand Rapids Griffins IHL 1996-1998
Grand Rapids Rampage AFL 1997
Gus Macker Basketball 1995-1998
Virginia Tech Athletics D1 Sports 2003-2007
Georgia Force AFL 2008-2009
Georgia Tech Athletics D1 Sports 2008-2009
WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) Ringside Physician and WWE Performance Center Medical Director 2009-2013

Academically, I served as:
VCOM Chair of Family Medicine & Assistant Professor of Family/Sports Medicine and OMM 2003-2007
GA-PCOM Director of Primary Care Skills Associate Professor of Family/Sports Medicine 2007-2013
LECOM Bradenton Associate Professor of Family/Sports Medicine 2014-2015
GA-PCOM Clinical Education Coordinator and Associate Professor of Family/Sports Medicine 2015-present.

I bring to the classroom 'real world' experience for the students in the area of Primary Care, Sports Medicine and OMM. My goal is to make the 'best of the best...BETTER!'
