To those who have found me on this web site:

I have retired.

I am now taking the time to be with my wife, children and grandchildren, who allowed me to be the physician I wanted to be through all of my many years so busy as a doctor. I will now spend some time in the woods and on the rivers that I have so missed.

I am very appreciative of the many teachers and mentors in my career who molded me into the man and physician I became.

I have been privileged to care for thousands of patients through my 35 years of Plastic Surgery practice. I will miss my patients and the doctors and nurses with whom I have worked.

I am grateful to those many physicians who allowed me to participate in the care of their patients, and I thank those patients who trusted me to be their surgeon.

I am leaving a premier Plastic Surgery group of outstanding, caring physicians and staff. I am honored to have been a part of this team.

My incredible nurse Carolyn Thomas remains with the group as the Clinic Administrator, and she is available for any of my former patients who might have questions about further plastic surgical care.

I have loved being a physician and surgeon. It has been a great ride!!
