Approach To Care

As a trained osteopathic physician, I approach medicine by viewing the body as a whole. My medical treatment not only focuses on the physical ailments of an individual but also mental, emotional and spiritual aspects that may be contributing to a person’s overall health. I enjoy getting to know my clients on a personal level to establish rapport and allow the medical care to be maximized through a comfortable connection.

A person’s health and wellbeing is a team effort. When they come see me, my job is to provide all treatment or preventative options while choosing what best fits that individual using shared decision making. Within the scope of my practice I am also able to incorporate osteopathic principles that include physical manipulation in clinic that provides relief for numerous musculoskeletal ailments. My special interests include sports medicine and preventative medicine.

I am a transplant to Minnesota, myself being from Iowa and my wife being from Wisconsin (go Cyclones and Badgers!). My wife and I love spending time outdoors, specifically cross country skiing and ice fishing. I am a fan of all sports, though baseball is my true love having had the opportunity to play in college. I am a proud owner of a French bulldog.
