In addition I was also impressed with the sophistication of medicine practiced at Alpena Regional Medical Center.”

He earned his medical degree from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and completed a bachelor’s degree in Integrated Life Sciences from Kent State University.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to become a physician.”
