Total body wellness has a positive affect on our general health.  Mark hopes to give you the needed combination to let you experience life the way it was meant to be.  The opioid focus we have seen over the past few years has come from over prescribing and ignoring the other wellness aspects of health care.  Mark works diligently to reduce medication prescriptions to a safe and acceptable level to meet the standards of the medical community, state, and federal guidelines.
Prior to becoming a Physician Assistant, Mark served as a Non-Commissioned Officer in the United States Marine Corps.  Free time is spent enjoying adventures with his wife and their Schnauzers. Mark’s off work passions are wine, food, design, art, architecture, travel and continuing to learn more Spanish.
