Fav thing about being an APD for the UAMS Internal Medicine Residency? Observing residents as they gain knowledge, experience and confidence, especially during PGY-2.
Fav thing about living in Little Rock or Arkansas? It’s the Natural State!
What do you do outside of the hospital to relax/have fun? I enjoy travelling with my wife and our adult son and daughter. I love to cook, especially Italian. For exercise, I like to be outdoors, so I run and bike on the Arkansas River Trail.
If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be? I really don’t have an answer for this because I can’t imagine doing anything else. Even though nobody in my family was a doctor, I made the decision to be one when I was in elementary school. I don’t know why; I didn’t have any family members, friends or neighbors who were doctors.
Fav show to binge watch? The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Fun fact about yourself that not a lot of people know? I failed Drivers Education in high school.
