Prior to becoming a P.A., he worked as an emergency room nurse for 15 years. He served in the U.S. Coast Guard as a search and rescue helicopter crewman for eight years, before returning to Malvern. He chooses family medicine because of the variety of people he gets to meet, and the relationships he forms with those families.

I awoke with severe flu symptoms last week. I called the clinic and asked they call in flu medication. She told me I would have to come in. I told her I was too weak to get dressed. I told her if I could get dressed I would go to the emergency room. She told me not to go to the emergency room as it would cause them to receive a “negative review”. However, they refused to call in any medication. She told me because I was on Medicare they would only pay for the flu med one time. I told her I would gladly pay for any additional flu med I may need in the future. I am a 67 year old female who has suffered this past week with full blown influenza needlessly.

My hygienist Michelle was great! She took time and answered all my questions. Checkout is easy and they make claim appeals with insurance easy.
