“The foundation of quality, comprehensive medical care is taking the time to sit down with patients and listen to their concerns without distraction. Forming trusting relationships with my patients allows me to learn how patients enjoy spending their time when they are not in the doctor’s office, so I can treat them effectively, and they can get back to doing the things they love.”

Biography

Chris was born and raised in Boston, MA and eventually made his way to Boston College. He obtained an undergraduate degree in Chemistry before deciding that being in a laboratory all day didn’t suit him well. After graduation, he spent a year volunteering in an HIV resource center and exploring the wilderness in Alaska. He went back to Boston to work in post-operative care for a year, before heading to DC to attend PA school at George Washington University. Since graduating he has obtained experience working in both Surgery and Emergency Medicine prior to his time with PMA Health. He is thrilled to be a part of the PMA team, and devotes his time primarily to seeing and treating urgent care patients.
