I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio and graduated from The University of Akron in 1987. I then graduated from the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo in 1991 and returned to Akron to complete my Internal Medicine Residency at Akron City Hospital in 1994. I have been in practice since July, 1994 with my business partner, Dr. Michael Gedeon. I see patients 16 years of age and older. I especially enjoy the opportunity to care for families and to get to know patients on a personal level.
I am also involved with teaching medical students from the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED), where I am an Associate Clinical Professor of Internal Medicine. I have maintained my certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine. I have been married for 26 years and have 4 children. Our oldest daughter is 22 and we have triplets who are 18. Our children are my greatest accomplishment and I am very proud of the young adults that they have become. I enjoy spending time with my family as well as golfing, hunting, and boating on Portage Lakes.
