What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?
I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to do my fellowship training in sports medicine here at Wake Forest Baptist. I was in private practice back in my home state of Illinois when an opportunity arose to return to join the faculty and work with the family medicine residency and sports medicine fellowship programs. I was so impressed with the facilities, the other faculty, the School of Medicine and the research opportunities that it was one that I could not pass up. The chance to interact with and be a part of one of the nation’s top family medicine and sports medicine departments is a true blessing. And the Triad is a wonderful place to live and to raise a family.
What are your clinical specialties?
I am a family medicine practitioner and am board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine. In addition, I have a Certificate of Added Qualification in primary care sports medicine.
Why did you decide to become a primary care doctor?
In primary care, we have the awesome opportunity to change health behaviors, interact with our patients on a personal level and truly become a team member with our patients to improve their overall well-being. Primary care physicians must be the drivers of health care reform as the center of all patient interactions. It is a great honor and responsibility to be that person and in that role.
What is your patient care philosophy?
I feel that a team and holistic approach where patients, physicians, nurses and others work together is crucial. All parts of the team must work together. Preventative medicine is the key to improving our health and lowering health care costs. That being said, patients must take the responsibility for preventative medicine. The importance of exercise as a medication, nutrition, screenings, immunizations and routine follow-up cannot be overstated.
What do you enjoy most about working with patients?
I love getting to connect with my patients, learning about them and their families and hopefully improving not only the number of years of their life, but also the quality of those years. It is so rewarding to see an injured athlete back on the field or a patient who changes a health behavior and is able to get off some of their medications.
What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in?
Since we are newly returned to the area, we are still getting settled and looking for opportunities. We are active with our church. I volunteer my time at athletic events, doing physicals for sports clearance and plan to continue to look for opportunities for outreach mission work.
What fun facts should we know about you?
I am married to the most wonderful woman, and have a 2-year-old son, who keeps me very active. I spend some of my free time with fitness activities. I enjoy triathlon sports (running, swimming, and biking), as well as spending time at local YMCAs. I have yet to find a sport or competitive activity that I do not enjoy. I help care for the Wake Forest University athletic department, and am a huge Demon Deacon fan.

I liked my previous doctor, who retired a year ago. I was fortunate enough to get in as a patient with Dr. Miles. About 15 months ago -- before my doctor retired but after I had made arrangements to switch to Dr. Miles -- i hurt my knee.
