I'm an avid golf enthusiast both playing and watching. Enjoy gardening, flowering plants, particularly bromeliads and the christmas cactus families, I'm a big fan of my three Bichon Frises. Finally, I like to visit national parks and am working my way through trying to hike in all the major national parks, the Olympic peninsula and the backcountry of Denali are next on my list.
Thank you to my patients who awarded me the Patients' Choice Award for 2009 and 2008. This top rating was awarded to a select few physicians in the country. I also received recognition in 2010 for the delivery of Quality Diabetes Care by NCQA (the National Committee for Quality Assurance).
