Philosophy of care
“Working in partnership with patients, I strive to provide ongoing, comprehensive and individualized care with an emphasis on leading a healthy and active lifestyle."

Background
"I love the Two Harbors area. It has been a wonderful place to raise my two daughters with all the outdoor and cultural opportunities. Also, My wife is a music teacher and plays the clarinet in the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra.

I was first introduced to northeastern Minnesota during college when I spent two summers working at the Environmental Learning Center. Upon my decision to go into medicine, I hoped to eventually practice in this area."
