He worked at the wound center at Community General Hospital (now part of Upstate), and then was the lead in establishing a wound center at Auburn Community Hospital. Many of these difficult wounds are secondary to venous insufficiency, prompting his intense interest in venous disease. He trained with leading vein expert Ron Bush, MD and subsequently opened his own vein center offering the latest techniques in treating vein problems. About 10 years ago he decided to devote his entire professional career to the treating of venous disease, and venous ulcers.

He is a member of the leading venous organizations in the country including American Venous Forum, and the American College of Phlebology. He has extensive experience in many venous disease treatments including Laser ablation, Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Foam Sclerotherapy, as well as diagnostic ultrasound.
