I am a father of four. My family and I are avid RV campers and enjoy visiting national parks. I enjoy a good (corny) dad joke. I enjoy the journey and the destination.

View Insurance Accepted

I started my education with a pursuit of aeronautical engineering. Through a series of events, including international healthcare travels, I changed my focus to medicine and eventually surgical oncology. I bring an engineering or problem solving mind to clinical challenges alone with a focus on community health. I am influenced by my faith, experience and love for the East Tennessee community.

Clinical Focus:
Pancreas cancer, primary liver cancer, metastatic cancer to the liver, colorectal cancer, Minimally Invasive Surgery, endocrine surgery - thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and neuroendocrine tumors, soft tissue sarcoma, melanoma, breast cancer, gastric/esophageal cancer
