I received my undergraduate degree at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio in biology. I then attended medical school and completed my surgical internship at Howard University in Washington D.C. I finished my residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Finally, I was board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery in 1985.
I was elected President of the Bluff City Medical Society for 1999-2000. I’m also on the Board of Trust for Opera Memphis and the Board of Directors for the Memphis and Shelby County Medical Society. I’m also a proud member of the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, the Association of Otolaryngology Administrators, and several other professional societies and organizations.
I’m married with 3 children. In my spare time, I enjoy music, bicycling, exercising and spending time with his family.
