About Me

Patients can expect to get very personalized individual care from me with thorough evaluation and treatment. We care for all your needs from the top of your head to the soles of your feet. I have a kind approach that seems to reach my patients better. If their care requires treatment beyond our clinic's capacity, I will find the best specialist I can for not only their disease process but for their personality.

I was brought to Paris when I was born to live on a farm south of town. I grew up here and then left for college, got married and started a family and my career. 

I have practiced in physician deprived areas throughout the state of Missouri and finally 35 years later made my way back home to be close to family. It has been a wonderful 16+ years getting to do what I love most- caring for the people of a community that I love.

I want my patients to know I will be here for them and they can always trust that I will be totally honest with them.  I will treat their illnesses, listen to their problems and pray for them always.
