Specializing in Family Medicine

Why did you choose family medicine? I became interested in medicine while I was still in high school. During my time in medical school, I realized that I enjoy working with the entire family, which family practice allows you to do. My time in residency training confirmed my desire to work with the whole family including extended families. After practicing here for 38 years I can’t imagine doing anything else.

What do you enjoy most about being a provider and working at MCHI? I enjoy working at MCHI very much. I know many of my patients from the community. It is often helpful to have some knowledge of what’s going on with their extended family. That’s an advantage of practicing in a small town. We have excellent staff at the clinic, hospital, MCC and East Park Villa which makes for improved care and makes my job easier.

What can a patient expect during a visit with you? As a physician, I strive to achieve a personal relationship with each of my patients. I want to know you as a person, not just a patient. I feel one of my strengths is that I genuinely listen to my patients. I actively include your input as we discuss your symptoms and concerns, and encourage you to ask questions. I want to work as a partner with you, and will use specialists as needed. I always plan to notify you regarding test results in a timely manner. If you have any questions, you can call or send a message through the portal.

What's one thing you want people to remember most about taking care of their health? We want you to be as healthy as possible, and there are things that we can do to help ourselves. A healthy diet with regular exercise is something we can all work harder at.  There are risk factors that we can monitor and treat as necessary. For example, if we find and treat diabetes and hypertension, we can help reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. Cancer screenings can catch cancer in an earlier stage when it’s more curable or in some cases prevent the cancer. Keeping up on your vaccinations can help prevent serious disease. Engaging with others, whether through family, friends, work, church, community services or volunteering is an important part of your mental health. Your total health is important to me as your family physician.

What are your favorite things to do in your free time? I am active at Messiah Lutheran Church here in Aurora. I am in the choir, bible study, sound booth operator and have served on the council. I have a small garden and enjoy doing yard work. I also enjoy fishing. We have a small boat and I like to go with my sons-in law. We take my grandchildren out for boat rides although so far they are not too interested in fishing!
