About Us

Our intention is to provide the local community with quality state-of-the-art medical care and advice, delivered in a personal, traditional way.  In a day where so much in medicine is changing, we believe that genuine care, integrity, and “shooting straight” does not go out of style.

We have chosen to practice in the Newport area mostly due to family considerations.  As my wife, Michelle, and I thought about where to settle down and build a practice, we wanted to move to a community where we could raise our family of four sons in a rural setting where traditional values were still important. 

We were excited to find exactly what we were looking for in the Newport area.  We look forward to integrating ourselves into Newport’s community life, and raising our growing family as part of it. 

Thank you for visiting us at Newport Internal Medicine and we look forward to seeing you and your family in our office.
