How did you first become interested in healthcare/plastic surgery?
My grandfather was a family doctor and was someone I greatly respected growing up. His sense of responsibility and unwavering sense of right and wrong is something that I have tried to emulate throughout my life. His influence initially drew me to medicine. As for plastic surgery, there is a creative and artistic side I was drawn to. I did research in my first year of medical school with a plastic surgeon that further piqued my interest and further reinforced my desire to enter the plastic surgery field.
What are your specialties at the practice?
My specialties include cosmetic surgery of the face and body and surgery of the breasts. This would include facelifts, eyelid lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction and breast enhancement such as augmentation and lifts.
What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of the job is getting to work with patients to help them realize their goals. Seeing their joy after they recover and witnessing the improvement in their confidence is a special feeling.
What are you most likely to be doing on a Sunday afternoon?
Spending time with family and friends. In the fall, my son Zac and I get together with my brother and friends to watch football games. It is mostly an excuse to spend time together. Afterwards we go home for a family dinner followed often by a family movie – if we can agree on one.
What was the most recent book you read?
The Steve Jobs biography. I alternate between fictional books with espionage and thrillers for relaxation and nonfiction books on a variety of topics.
Where is your favorite place to visit?
Our summer camp on Warners Lake. There, we are surrounded by our extended family, and it allows me to relax and feel like a kid again.
What is your favorite activity outside of the office?
My favorite thing to do is to watch my children play soccer. I have had the pleasure of getting to watch them grow as players and people and am extremely proud of their accomplishments.
What is your favorite meal to cook for your friends or family?
I don’t really cook. I do love to eat however – anything but seafood. My favorite is ice cream.
