Very little can compare with the sense of gratification a physician feels when he (or she) knows they have made a positive impact on a patient’s life. This knowledge was what led me to medical school following my experiences as a paratrooper and medic. My fascination with the intricacy of facial anatomy and the artistic nature of plastic surgery led me to focus on Head and Neck Surgery and to sub-specialize in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I enjoy the artistic nature of facial plastic surgery, and the challenge of continuously striving for improvement and perfection. Whether turning back the clock for a patient who shows signs of premature aging, or giving a rhinoplasty patient the look they have always dreamed of, I truly enjoy my work.
