I went into family medicine because I admired my father so much as he spent 50 years as a Family Physician. I enjoyed caring for multi-generational families over the 30 years I practiced. Now in urgent care, I enjoy dealing with acute care problems like infections, orthopedic injuries and lacerations. It’s a refreshing change from the 30 years handling chronic health care needs!
