My Areas of Practice
As a Board Certified Family Physician I enjoy being a "first responder" to all types of medical problems and concerns. Through the years patient satifaction has been my greatest reward. My own family is very important to me and I know all of my patients feel the same. Doing my best to provide care in a sensitive way is my goal.

With 21 grandchildren and families living in this area, my wife and I are busy with their activities. We still find time to visit our cabin in Brainerd area and travel and are thankful for the blessing of each day.
