Who I Am
After many years of hard work and strenuous studying, I began practicing as a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner in 2014. My extensive medical knowledge combined with an ongoing curiosity to learn about the latest trends, define my success in the medical field. To learn more about my medical and academic background, please read below.
I completed my undergraduate degree at West Virginia University in Morgantown WV in 2011. I graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Family Nurse Practitioner Program, earning a Master's Degree in Nursing in 2014. I obtained national accreditation by completing the American Nurses Credentialing Center Board Exam.
I worked for Weirton Medical Center for seven years, working in the hospital, working in primary care, and cardiology. I am familiar with all levels of medicine and have numerous healthy relationships with physicians and other nurse practitioners in the tri-state area.
I am licensed to practice medicine in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. I am permitted to treat everyone from a new born child to the advanced aged . I am lawfully permitted to prescribe any medication a medical doctor is permitted to.
I have worked for several of the area's top physicians. I have participated in more than 15,000 clinical encounters in my lifetime. I possess great insight and understanding on more than 1200 diseases.
I am licensed to prescribe Suboxone, but will only do it on a very limited basis, and we are VERY selective. We want to help the person enslaved by addiction, not create them.
I have served in the United States Army Reserves for almost 30 years. I am Nurse Practitioner with the 360th Medical Detachment located in Twinsburg Ohio. I presently hold the rank of Captain. I have trained in 7 countries in the world and have deployed to Boston Massachusetts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
I deployed to Balad Iraq in 2005 with the 463rd Engineer Battalion where I served as a technical surveyor for almost one year. I had a really great time with some very wonderful people.
I have been happily married to my wife for almost 25 years, who is the manager of the practice. I have 3 wonderful children, including 2 daughters who are both nurses, who also work for the practice.
I am a member of Promise Of Victory Church Of God in Weirton WV. I am an Church trustee and usher. I am a humble follower of Jesus Christ, through no work of my own, and wake up in to His wonderful mercy and grace, every morning. I hope to see Him one day in Heaven after this life has been extinguished.
We possess an intensive clinical curiosity regarding disease. We love to help others when we can. We continue to study new diseases everyday we wake up. We strive to understand why they occur, what we can do to treat them, and how to prevent them from happening again to you.
We HATE disease!
