I was born and raised in Alma, Kansas where I met my high school sweetheart, Lisa, while playing football at Manhattan High School and followed her to Kansas State University. While there, I majored in human nutritional sciences with a minor in biology. I also did extensive research on the effects of vitamin A on lung cancer. I then graduated from The University of Kansas School of Medicine and completed my family medicine residency at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. After completing training and becoming a board certified Family Physician, I opened Atlas MD, a practice that I had been dreaming about for nearly a decade. Atlas MD represents my ideal medical practice where I’m able to shrug off the burdens and restrictions of government and insurance regulation so I can focus solely on my patients and their needs.
