“I didn’t plan on following in my father’s footsteps and going into medicine.  I started out as a business major in college, but did not find it nearly as exciting as I had expected. I found that pursuing a career in medicine was more attractive to me and actually suited my personality. I take great pleasure in performing procedures and seeing the improvement my efforts can bring to people’s lives. 

Faith, family and excellence in patient care are extremely important to me. I chose to join Wilmington Surgical because the surgeons who have come before me, and those that I will call my partners, place great emphasis on these same values. When a patient entrusts me with their healthcare, I strive to treat them the way I would want my family, or myself, to be treated.  I sincerely look forward to serving the community of Wilmington and surrounding region for many years to come.”

Wilmington patients tell their stories.
