He also appreciates that at Reclaim, he is able to spend a full hour with his patients, which he feels is vital when utilizing a patient-specific treatment approach.

Though he studied and trained in Texas, he spent most of his childhood in Eugene and fondly remembers when his parents sold wind chimes at Saturday Market. He recently moved back here with his 10-year-old daughter and is excited for her to grow up around such a vibrant culture with so many opportunities for creative outlets and outdoor adventures. He readily admits that he's a nerd, and enjoys video games, Dungeons and Dragons, and reading epic fantasy novels; though he also looks forward to exploring the cycling and hiking trails Oregon has to offer.
