I have been a family practice physician in Minnetonka and St. Louis Park for a number of years. Primary care is exciting because it allows me to serve patients of all ages with a wide variety of problems. Working with patients, and their families, as a team to manage their medical needs is a fun and rewarding part of practice. I am currently working as Medical Director of Employee Health and Occupational Safety at Park Nicollet Clinic and see patients in the Employee Health Clinic. My hobbies include photography, travel, fishing, golf, National Ski Patrol (alumni) and woodworking.
