Prior to going to medical school, I spent 10 years on active duty in the U.S. Army as an armor officer and attack helicopter platoon leader. Currently, I practice clinical and surgical podiatry 20% of the time and am the Chief Medical Officer for Christie Clinic.
Why I Chose Health Care
“When I was a little boy, I broke my arm while we were stationed in Ankara, Turkey, and was hospitalized in Libya, Africa. I remember the Air Force male orderly who befriended me during my long six-week bed rest in traction. He became my friend and made me feel very special. I wanted to be like him and be able to take care of people and make them feel special.”
