After almost 30 years of service in the United States Air Force the opportunity be a small business owner was a perfect next phase of life for my wife and me. I have enjoyed the opportunity to be an engineer, acquisition officer and physician during my Air Force career. I've trained in Family Medicine at Eglin and have been a family physician and flight surgeon at Hurlburt Field and Eglin Air Force Base. We have been drawn to the Emerald Coast since the early 2000's and have been here or around ever since. Katy and I have chosen to stay here and build this practice as our professional and medical home.
Welcome to our family practice.
