Meet John
Family Physician

Education: Doctorate from Indiana University School of Medicine

What Lead You to Your Current Job: I always wanted to go into medicine. I became interested in primary care when I was a resident. After talking with other hospitals, I set up my practice with Hendricks Regional Health because they were the best fit for me.

Job Duties: During a normal day I see patients every 15 to 30 minutes, which means I never know what I’m going to see next. I treat everything from a newborn, to a broken bone in any given day.

What I Like About My Job: I like the variety in the patients I see and I enjoy being able to help others. There is also a huge need for primary care physicians in future due to our aging population.
