I strive to understand the causes and contributions to my patient's illnesses and work with patients and loved ones to develop the best treatment. Education and prevention of illness are important aspects of my approach to care. It is a privilege to be able to assist patients to maintain or regain good health.
I focus on three key areas in my practice: HIV care and treatment, consultations in infectious disease and teaching. For over 20 years, I have assisted the 16th Street Community Health Center's HIV program while maintaining office based care for HIV patients. I have over 30 years of experience at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center in hospital-based consultations for infectious disease. I am part of the active faculty for Aurora's Internal Medicine and Family Practice residents as well as Adjunct Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Additionally, I have interest in antimicrobial stewardship and chair the Aurora Health Care Antimicrobial Stewardship Program.
I earned my medical degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I completed a residency in Internal Medicine, along with a fellowship in Infectious Diseases, at the University of Minnesota. I am board certified in both Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease.
Outside of work, I enjoy biking, hiking, cross country skiing in Wisconsin's parks and trying to keep up with my wife and children.
