Fellowship: Wake Forest School of Medicine (Geriatrics)

What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?

I did my training here at Wake Forest School of Medicine: a residency in Family Medicine and subsequently a fellowship in Geriatrics. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and when the opportunity arose to rejoin Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, I was excited at the prospect. I look forward to interacting with medical students, residents and fellows, as well as continuing to practice medicine in a familiar, supportive environment. I welcome the opportunity to learn and teach alike.

What are your clinical specialties?

I am fellowship trained in Geriatrics, and I have a passion for caring for the elderly. I do see patients of all age, though, and I welcome the spectrum of ages and backgrounds associated with the full scope of family medicine. I have particular interests in geriatric syndromes, including falls, dementia, delirium and polypharmacy.

Why did you decide to become a family medicine doctor?

I chose family medicine (and primary care in general) because of my interests in caring for both young and old patients. I like having the opportunity to evaluate and manage a wide variety of issues.

What is your patient care philosophy?

I like to focus on function and quality of life. In my younger patients, that means high quality preventative care. In my older patients, that often means a multi-dimensional, team-based evaluation, with efforts to eliminate any factors that might lead to frailty and functional decline.

What do you enjoy most about working with patients?

I enjoy hearing patients’ and families’ life stories and listening to their perspectives and priorities. This allows me to interact with my patients in a fashion that is meaningful to them and hopefully in a way that promotes good health and emphasizes their own goals.

What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in and what fun facts should we know about you?

My wife Beth and I have a 2 year-old son and another son on the way, due in October. As you can imagine, this has kept us quite busy. When I have free time, I enjoy running and swimming. I also love live music, especially rock ‘n’ roll in its various forms (indie rock, country rock, punk rock, etc.). I have done a few talks locally; my favorite was an “Ask the Doc” type occasion with a group of seniors at one of the local churches in downtown Winston Salem.
