More about Robert

Robert was born and raised in northern California. After serving as a Hospital Corpsman in the US Navy for six years, he obtained his first bachelor’s degree from the University of California, San Diego. Shortly after graduating, Robert transferred to Butler University in Indianapolis, IN, where he completed bachelors and master’s degrees in physician assistant studies.

Robert is married to Laura, a current Hospital Corpsman in the US Navy, and has three kids. He enjoys spending time outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing.

Philosophy of Care

“Joint replacement surgery can be a scary thing for many patients. I want my patients to know they can ask any question and receive an answer. I want them to understand all of their treatment options. I want to have a relationship with them. That’s the kind of patient care I believe in.”
