I purchased my first surgical antique at the age of 12. My father was a physician and I would occasionally glance through his medical journals . One day, I noticed an ad in the back of the "New England Journal of Medicine" advertising medical antiques for sale from an English dealer. I didn’t have a lot of money, but was able to buy an early pocket surgical set. I was hooked!
In my early youth, I would ride along in the car with my father as he made house calls, sometimes even getting to go in as he talked and examined ill patients. Watching, as he helped them, I decided that medicine was my calling as well.
The dream came to fruition. I graduated from Georgetown University and then went on to complete my residency in Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Cincinnati.
After residency, I spent a year teaching at the University, before deciding I really missed patient interaction. Having grown up on the West coast, I decided to join an existing practice in Oregon.
Today, I remain in active practice enjoying my work and my patients.
