Biographical Sketch

I was born at what is now Cleveland Clinic Health Systems Marymount Hospital and have lived and worked in Cleveland my whole life. I was blessed to have great parents who worked hard to allow me the opportunity to attend St. Peter Chanel High School and I was able to help myself by working at what is now CCHS South Pointe Hospital, which allowed me to get an excellent premedical education at John Carroll University.

After completing four years of osteopathic medical school at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, I returned to CCHS South Pointe, where I completed a one year osteopathic rotating internship and 3 years of Internal Medicine residency, under Robert G. DeRue, DO. 

I served two years of service with the U.S. Public Health Service and was in private practice from 1986-1998 and served as the Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine and Internal Medicine Residency Program Director at Richmond Heights General Hospital and the Medical Director of Long Term Care at Heather Hill Hospital, Health and Care Center, before joining the Staff of Cleveland Clinic in 1998.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of a team of caring professionals at the Cleveland Clinic Willoughby Hills Family Health Center, where I have served as Associate Medical Director, from 2000-2008 and Medical Director, since then.  I have been given excellent opportunities to be involved in rolling out the Electronic Medical Record at Cleveland Clinic and continue to look for ways that these wonderful tools can help us to serve the people that we see and our community better.

As an osteopathic physician, I have been trained to listen to and care for people, not diseases and I strive to be the best example I can be to those that we teach to continually improve my skills, especially at being a better listener. I am proud to serve my profession, the Cleveland Clinic, and our patients through my involvement in national leadership positions, including the American Osteopathic Association Board of Trustees. In 2013, I was appointed to be an Associate Dean for the Ohio University-Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine's Northeast Ohio Extension Campus at South Pointe Hospital, in Warrensville Heights, in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic.

I have a wonderful wife and four children who have diverse careers, and have each been a blessing to my wife and I.  I have been a resident of Concord Township for the last 26 years. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and the outdoors.

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. The Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, the Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers’ discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.
