Personal

I feel blessed to be able to practice medicine. I can't imagine a more fulfilling occupation. For 30 years, I have enjoyed health maintenance and helping people of all ages overcome challenging health problems. Prior to my 17 years at Park Nicollet, I spent 20 years in small town clinical practices in Breckenridge, Colorado and Winsted, Minnesota. My practice has spanned the full spectrum of family medicine – delivering babies and providing geriatric and emergency care. I have a large family and a wonderful marriage that enriches me and keeps me working. We enjoy sailing, skiing, reading and travel. My wife and I are deeply involved with exchange students. I marvel at the cultural diversity of our world. I try to work in the hospital and pursue continuing education opportunities as much as possible to keep my skills sharp. Park Nicollet Clinic and Methodist Hospital maintain the highest quality staff possible. We are continually learning from each other to provide the best possible care. Being a good listener and communicator are skills that are very important in this job.
