Featured Physician

 Beyond the white coat and scrubs, there is much more to our doctors than meets the eye. Each of them is exceptional not only for the work they do within the practice caring for patients, but also in how they serve our community and/or global communities. Each month we feature one of our physicians and highlight an interesting, unique aspect about him, so stay tuned and get to know our doctors as well as we do!
