Personal Statement:  

 "I graduated from medical school in 1981 and in the pursuit of excellence have practiced and trained in different capacities in medicine over the last 26 years in different countries.  I am very interested in Internal Medicine but for my desire to know more I have done sub-specialization in Cardiology and Nephrology.  I have a very successful practice with the main base of practice in Jackson and the surrounding counties.  I strongly believe in continued education, preventative medicine and clinical research."
