Arkansas has always been my home except for 2 years in Louisiana as a child. From Bearden High School, to Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, to UAMS in Little Rock, to my AHEC Residency in El Dorado and establishing a solo practice in 1985, I have enjoyed south Arkansas.

As a freshman medical student, the prevailing thought on family life from my peers was that medicine and family involvement don’t mix. Frankly, they were wrong! It does take a concerted effort, but my understanding wife and two grown children are the most important things in the world to me and I’m still actively involved in their lives. They are key reasons I enjoy being a Family Physician and most of my outside activities and hobbies revolve around my family.

I also have always loved working with older adults and our “Senior Citizens”.  That is one reason I worked hard to get the additional certifications and specialties in Geriatrics.  Caddie, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, pictured above, makes nursing home rounds with me as a therapy dog.  It is amazing watching the smiles of the nursing home residents as we visit them. 


As a founding member of SAMA, I’m thankful daily for what has been accomplished through the clinic and look forward to the challenges and opportunities of each new day.
