When did you know you wanted to be a radiologist? Why?

Third year of medical school. I had a background in science, specifically chemistry, physics and mathematics and I am a visually oriented person.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

Spending time with the love of my life, my wife Lisa. Lisa and I enjoy travelling. Spending time with my son, who is an environmental engineer and more intelligent and a more talented tennis player than his father. I also enjoy tennis. I have played tennis competitively on teams and leagues since the age of 13 and was the state champion twice in high school.

What makes Spectrum Imaging (OSC MRI) so special?

The people. The staff and the patients. I have worked with Nancy (radiology technologist) for 23 years. Also, our MRI is state of the art and wide open on all four sides, which is very patient friendly.

What might your patients not know about you?

I love the symphony and I am a perfectionist.

If you were an animal, what kind would you be?

A Siamese cat.
