Outside Interests:

My hobby is doing stained glass. I have a daughter and a son and two kids-in-law. They are all Ironman and marathon runners, and I enjoy cheering them on and being support staff.

Any true feelings of why you are a doctor and why you deserve a patient's trust to care for them?

I love delivering babies! I deliver over 90% of my own patients. I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families.
