Why did you choose this field of medicine?
I am able to utilize most of the skills I learned in medical school, and I believe that family medicine is unique in its potential to empower patients and their families to make better lifestyle choices that improve their overall health. Plus, it has been a joy to get to know persons in long-term relationships and help them through various health and family crises.
I have been an active member of Hope Church in Richfield for 40 years.
What’s special about the Apple Valley Medicine Center?
I have been associated with the Apple Valley Medical Center since 1990, when I first started working in the Urgent Care during my residency. I have been impressed with the growth of the clinic and the stability of the physicians. I have since worked at a number of clinics across Minnesota and have gained broad experience with the medical enterprise. I consider the Apple Valley Medical Clinic both patient and doctor friendly.
