Additional Information

What are your favorite hobbies? “If I’m not in the office, chances are I’m out riding my bicycle. My wife and I are passionate about cycling, often logging up to 100 miles per week. South Carolina has some of the most pristine riding roads in the country, and we absolutely love it. Our goal is to attempt the 'Assault on Mount Mitchell' in the near future.” 

Describe your care philosophy: “To use the old adage, ‘less is more.’ My personal goal is to help every patient achieve their optimum health, and to maintain that healthy state for as long as possible. I spend a great deal of time counseling my patients on diet and exercise, aiming to minimize or even eliminate some of the most common health problems without the use of medications. This is accomplished through a team approach that is customized to a patient’s individual needs.” 

What do you say to your patients to inspire them to strive for a healthier life? “I help my patients to realize that little changes, over time, go a very long way. One healthy decision often leads to another. Smoking one less cigarette per day can eventually lead to quitting. Choosing fresh vegetables over potatoes can help the pounds melt away. A simple walk to the mailbox and back can grow into completing a 5K. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how sick you are, or the extent of your limitations, there is always a way to improve.” 

Why do you love to practice medicine? “The relationship that forms between a physician and a patient is unlike any other. It is a true honor to be able to affect another human being on an individual basis. I love learning about my patients, engaging them on their level, and working towards our shared goal: optimal health.” 

Why did you pursue a career in medicine? “I love the challenge of primary care. Every day brings new challenges, whether it is diagnosing unknown problems, adapting the latest research to a patient’s care plan, or being a patient advocate to ensure their medications are accessible and affordable. Medicine is rapidly changing, and this career keeps me on my toes. In addition, I feel that my career allows me to contribute to my community in a profoundly meaningful way.”
