Being from Fort Payne originally, I was very interested in returning home to practice. We are very lucky in our town to have low crime rate, good schools and an abundance of outdoor recreational activities. So it was the setting rather than the hospital that I chose. Fortunately, the hospital had a need for a Primary Care Physician and more than willing to work to accommodate my wants and needs with regard to the specifics of my practice.

July marks my 30th year of medical practice in Fort Payne, Alabama. The current hospital CEO and hospital leadership have helped me remain successful in my practice. I would advise anyone beginning their career in medicine to partner with hospital leadership, especially a CEO they can trust. At DeKalb Regional, we are physician led and operationally sound.
