He finds great satisfaction in helping patients return to the activities they enjoy and providing a truly outstanding experience from beginning to end.

He was a four-year letter winner on the Lehigh University men's basketball team, winning the Patriot League championship and playing in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament ("March Madness") his junior year.
