Personal profile

Area of Expertise

I am board certified in Family Medicine and I practice medicine with a distinctively osteopathic approach to patient care. My interest is in how a patient’s environment influences their health and wholeness. Because of my brief stint in the USAF, I have a special interest in veteran’s health, too. Following residency (in Searcy, Arkansas), I packed my wagon and brought my family west to Fort Worth, where I spent a year training in neuromusculoskeletal medicine. Serendipity then brought me into the world of Performing Arts Medicine, and under the tutelage of Drs Sajid Surve, DO and Yein Lee, DO, I became the world’s first fellowship trained performing arts medicine physician. I trained in this subspecialty at UNTHSC, and then accepted an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at UNTHSC.
