I was born in Cullman, Alabama and moved to Montgomery in 1970. I graduated from Sidney Lanier High School and from Auburn University with honors in chemistry.
I attended the University of Alabama in Birmingham. During my senior year, I was vice president of the Tinsley R. Harrison Medical Society. My internship and residency were completed at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I served as chief resident in my final year and have been in family practice since 1990.
I am board certified and received my fellowship from the American Academy of Family Medicine. The fellowship is an avenue for special recognition for members of the AAFP who have distinguished themselves among their colleagues in community service and by professionalism developed through education, academics, and research. I am also board certified by the American College of Forensic Examiners, and I am certified as a DOT medical examiner. Recently, I was selected as one of the Best Doctors in America. This is the second time I have received this honor. Also, I was recently selected as the Outstanding Family Physician and the Outstanding General Practitioner in the Montgomery Advertiser's Reader's Choice Awards.
My interests include sports, water activities, reading and family. My wife, Tracie, is from Birmingham, Alabama, and we have two children, Madison and Savannah.
Our goal at Montgomery Family Medicine is to provide care and comfort to the ill and injured, while preventing catastrophic diseases in others by identifying and diagnosing problems before they are even perceptible. Finding potential problems before they arise is preferred and rewarding - for everyone involved. By collecting data about family health and personal behaviors, then analyzing the medical information gathered at visits, we can help modify and develop strategies to give people hope for longer and healthier lives. It has been said that the avoidance of illness is as important as the treatment of ailments, though more difficult to anticipate or understand.
My training began at the University of Central Missouri, with medical studies at the University of Alabama School of Medicine, located at the University of Alabama, Birmingham campus. My Residency training in Family Medicine was completed at the Tuscaloosa Family Practice Residency Program and I have served at Montgomery Family Medicine since 1999. My wife and I have two sons in college and a daughter in high school.
Alabama is my home. I was born in Tuscaloosa and have called the state my home for most of my life. My family lived for a short time in Knoxville, Tennessee and Austin, Texas before settling in Montgomery in 1976. I graduated locally from Sidney Lanier High School. I was very fortunate to have been a student in the early days of the LAMP program at Lanier. My undergraduate studies were completed in town at Auburn University at Montgomery. I fondly recall working while in college in the 80's installing computer lines for the State of Alabama as well as volunteering at Baptist Hospital where I gained valuable medical experience.
I graduated from the University of Alabama School of Medicine at the University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) before completing my residency at the Tuscaloosa Family Medicine Residency. I was active in recruiting and enjoyed a position on the Resident Selection Committee. I was named the VA Internal Medicine Student of the Year while in Tuscaloosa.
In 1995 I decided to establish my Family Medicine Practice here in Montgomery and have enjoyed lasting relationships with my colleagues since. I have acquired special training in skin and dermal procedures, including Laser and Botox treatments and am able to offer these procedures in my office. I am Board Certified and have recently been named a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice.
My wife of 27 years, the former Lori Michelle Pollard, is also from Montgomery. We currently have three teenage children: Ben is employed at Motion Industries in Birmingham and soon to be married to Elliot Miller. The couple will reside in Birmingham. Shelby is a Junior at the University of Alabama with anticipated graduation in the next year. Our youngest William is graduating this year from high school at Saint James School and will be entering college this upcoming year at the University of Alabama. We enjoy spending family time together and have been active in multiple sports including basketball, softball, hiking, cycling, golf and football. I would like to extend a warm welcome to our growing medical practice at Montgomery Family Medicine.
As a family practice physician, it is my goal to treat patients of all ages with compassion while using the latest medical knowledge.
I view each patient as a unique individual. I hope to use my medical training to improve the health and quality of life of each person I treat.
