I grew up in Illinois but moved to Michigan to attend college. I graduated from Michigan State University in 1969. After college, I was fortunate enough to practice alongside Dr. Lyle Hartrick. I worked with Dr. Hartrick for 17 years before purchasing the practice from him. I have been practicing veterinary medicine for 49 years. I love performing general surgeries and orthopedic surgeries, such as ACL repairs. I have been happily married to my wife, Lee, for 52 years. Together we have two beautiful twin daughters and one amazing son. In my spare time, I like to golf, garden, fish, and spend quality time with my wonderful seven grandchildren.
