Endocrinology, Diabetes & Meta
I chose endocrinology because it involves clinical nutrition, which was, and continues to be, a big interest of mine.
Many of my relationships with patients span more than 20 years, and I recognize that we are taking care of the whole person, not just an endocrine disorder.
I have served as the head of the obesity subcommittee for the nutrition committee at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and I am a co-author of its national guidelines for the medical management of obese surgery patients. I earned the association's certification in neck ultrasound, which enhances my expertise in diagnosing and treating thyroid nodes and cancer.
In 2007, I was named board member of the year by the Charlotte chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, where I served on the board for six years. I have participated in 13 of the foundation's Ride to Cure events.
I moved to Charlotte in 1995 with my wife and two children. We now also have two dogs. I love spending time with family (dogs included) and bicycle riding. And if you like medical thrillers, try the book I wrote, E.M.R.! It's about a medical record system becoming self-aware, inspired by some late nights at work.
