I was born and raised here in Athens. My wife and I attended Cedar Shoals and went on to UGA. We have moved back after several years of training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology. During this time we have grown to a family of five, including two boys and a girl. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be back in the community where we grew up.
I strive to be the most vigorous patient advocate as I can be. As medicine becomes increasingly complex, there is a need to stay focused on the individual. This philosophy guides me during every aspect of my days (and nights) as an interventional cardiologist.
