Philosophy of Medicine

I was fortunate to be exposed to Neurosurgery at an early age by Dr. Daniel Schmelka in Grand Forks as well as have a talented mentor in Dr. Charles Branch, Jr., train me at Wake Forest University. My practice involves correlating patient symptoms, physical exam findings, and imaging studies and then looking at appropriate surgical solutions to try to improve quality of life.
