Some of my specialties are post op knees, shoulders, hips and ankles ranging from ACL reconstruction, joint replacements to rotator cuff repairs and so much more.

After working in various parts of the medical field for the last 20ys, I could not be more happy to now be a part of the AGAPE family. It is a wonderful feeling for me to be able to help someone else in their time of need. To take that extra step could mean a mile for someone else.

When i am not working, my 9yr old son keeps me busy with making new lego creations, any pretty much anything outdoors. In the summer we enjoy going to our cottage in Cape Vincent, NY.

I look forward to working with you and making your AGAPE experience the best it can be.
