About Me

I believe that an active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle. My philosophy as a sports medicine physician is that a moving body is a healthy body. Whether a person is looking to exercise for the first time, a nationally ranked tennis player looking to complete their season without injury or somewhere in between, my team and I can help you achieve your goals.

My family and I are very excited to become a part of the Jacksonville community. We have had wonderful experiences during our time spent in New York, Maryland, North Carolina and are thrilled to call Jacksonville home.

I stay active by playing ice hockey, tennis and golf. I also enjoy kayaking with my wife and spending time with my two children. In addition to my sports medicine responsibilities, I also am a volunteer on two USTA national committees; the Sports Science Committee and the Wheelchair Tennis Committee.
