After graduation from medical school, I decided to move back to my hometown to complete residency training at Latrobe Hospital. Upon completion of my residency training, I decided to stay on as a faculty member at Latrobe Family Medicine Residency. This was a great experience that allowed me to grow as a physician and an educator. After 6 years in this role, I decided that I really wanted to focus less on administrative responsibilities and more on direct patient care.
I am most interested in musculoskeletal, addiction, and preventative medicine. As an osteopathic physician, I am very interested in utilizing osteopathic manipulation in the management of chronic musculoskeletal ailments. I like to focus on the whole person and try to design individual treatment plans that incorporate lifestyle changes in addition to pharmaceutical management. I try to develop partnerships with my patients so that we can work together to improve health.
