Accepting new patients




I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and I'm so excited to be coming home after many years in Illinois (It's lonely there for a Packers fan!).

I have been happily married to my wife, Shani, for 27 years, and we are the proud parents of seven children -- Conor, Brendan, Liam, Owen, Fiona, Nuala, and Maura. As a father of many and an uncle of 32 nieces and nephews, I am thrilled to be part of a large, loving family, and I feel equally honored to be a part of my patients' families. I treat all my patients as I would my own family and understand the setbacks and victories, the hard times and happy times in each of their lives. Being a pediatrician is such an awesome privilege, for which I am so grateful. I recently said goodbye to my very first patient, Ethan, after seeing him for nearly 22 years -- since day one in the hospital. And I have also become a "grand-pediatrician" to my former patient, Emily, who now brings the next generation to me -- her baby, Annie. While it is bittersweet to see my first patients grow into adults, I am so excited for these next fun-filled years at Westbrook Pediatrics! What a fabulous team we have here, and I am so thrilled to join them!

When there is free time, I love to explore the wonders of nature, hike through woods and fields, wade in a stream, wander the shores, garden and farm, and spend as much of my time as possible outside with my family.
