12 years later, I am an ER physician, Chief Wellness Officer of Florida Emergency Physicians, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Central Florida Medical College and personal physician to many of the world’s top professional golfers. I love my ER job and have been thrilled to support my golfers through every major competition on the planet. I’ve met presidents and my childhood sporting heroes.
I share my story to reveal this critical point: Given my history, I was never the most likely person to achieve success. In fact, when I decided to apply for residency training in the US, I received 352 rejections for an interview. 352 rejections over the course of 6 years! But I just kept trying. I knew I wanted to live in the US and I did not give up! Eventually, a very special American doctor took a chance on me and I now get to call America home.
As I launch this site, I am humbled by the extraordinary opportunities I’ve been afforded and indebted to those who helped me along the way. I want you to know that you too can achieve great things … if you set a goal, work relentlessly and find people to mentor you. And if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that good health allows us to be successful and elevates any success we already have.
That’s why I created this on line office – to empower you with the tools for optimal health. Here I will share what I know about Emergency Medicine, Sports Medicine and general wellness. There will be blogs, webinars and podcasts. I will bring you the latest in relevant research and share my insider’s perspective on breaking news. You will have opportunities to ask me questions and share your opinions.
I look forward to serving you, just as you have all served me, my entire career. Please reach out with questions. I’d love to meet you virtually or in person (but not in the ER!). Until then, be well … and go live life on your terms!
