MDR Healthcare Search recently had the pleasure of adding another great physician to our list of exceptional candidates. Currently, this outgoing family medicine doctor is finishing up a yearlong Locum Tenens assignment in Santa Monica, CA and is looking to find a permanent place for his practice as well as the dedicated patients that come with it.

 

 

Training

 

This physician earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology at the University of Scranton. After completion of his undergraduate studies, he attended the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine and received his Doctorate of Medicine in 2004.

Embracing the core values of integrity, innovation and growth, he has consistently gone beyond the scope of work and has regularly performed unsupervised home visits to patients who are disabled and cannot ambulate.
