Why I chose to practice in Grand Rapids...

Grand Rapids is a community that fosters growth and development. Having been born and raised here, but leaving for nearly 15 years, the amount of opportunity here for physicians and healthcare providers is remarkable. More than anything however, it is the people and the environment in which I work that truly sets Grand Rapids apart.
